Johannesburg – Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan is among the “greedy” leaders allegedly using government to "amass wealth", according to President Jacob Zuma's son Edward.

Edward Zuma issued a statement in his personal capacity on Friday to “air” his view on the state of affairs. In the statement, Zuma said the constitution has been “abused and selectively applied” to suit certain groupings within society.

In Zuma’s view, there are corrupt leaders who are prospering at the expense of the country’s poor through their relationships with “white monopoly capital”.
