Johannesburg – Mounting evidence shows Finance Minister Malusi Gigaba is compromised and was appointed by the Guptas, according to the Democratic Alliance (DA).

The leading opposition party will hold a protest outside National Treasury on Thursday, calling for Gigaba to step down, said Graham Charters, acting spokesperson to DA leader Mmusi Maimane.

Maimane will hand over a memorandum to Treasury and Gigaba’s resignation will be the first step in the “uncapturing” of the state, said Charters. He added that Gigaba’s competency as finance minister was compromised by his link to the Guptas. Regardless of his plans to grow the economy and create jobs, the best thing for him to do is to resign, explained Charters.
