Cape Town – Finance Minister Malusi Gigaba’s new advisers at Treasury have controversial backgrounds, with one having alleged links to the Guptas.

Gigaba’s spokesperson Mayihlome Tshwete tweeted on Tuesday that the minister’s advisers are Thamsanqa Msomi, who will focus on political issues, and Kholeka Gcaleka, who will focus on legal issues.

Msomi is a Denel board member who was “implicated by two highly placed sources as being ... close to the Gupta family”, according to a report in Mail & Guardian in March 2016.
