Cape Town - Corruption in South Africa is not confined only to the wealthy Gupta family, conceded the South African Federation of Trade Unions (Saftu).

The newly-formed union federation, which is headed by Zwelinzima Vavi, who was kicked out of the Congress of South African Trade Unions, weighed in on, among other things, growing allegations of corruption against the controversial Gupta family, who are close friends with President Jacob Zuma.

"For every politician or SOE (state-owned enterprise) official who receives a bribe, there is a company that pays that bribe, and they are not all called Gupta," Saftu charged in a strongly worded statement issued on Tuesday.
