Former president Jacob Zuma was someone who the Gupta family could use "against the people of South Africa, his own country and his own government to advance their own business interests".

He was central to the Gupta family's "scheme of state capture", Chief Justice Raymond Zondo found in part four of the State Capture Inquiry report. Zuma opened the doors for the Guptas to raid SOEs and "help themselves to the money and assets of the people of South Africa". He was central in enabling the Guptas to take control of the country.

Part four of Zondo's report is an indictment of Zuma and the ANC's active role to facilitate the Guptas' plan to extract and steal public resources on a vast scale.
