  • Gupta family should be charged with treason: Malema




    The Gupta family should be charged with treason for using Waterkloof Air Force Base, former ANC Youth League president Julius Malema said on Sunday.

    "We call on the National Prosecuting Authority [NPA] to charge the Gupta family with high treason for initiating and pushing through efforts that led to the usage of our military airbase despite the disapproval by the minister of defence," Malema said in a statement.

    "If the NPA is not in the pockets of the Guptas like many are, it will proceed to lay charges of treason against the Gupta family for undermining and threatening national security."

    The Guptas landed a chartered jet at the air base on Tuesday. On board were around 270 guests invited to the wedding of Vega Gupta and Aakash Jahajgarhia at Sun City.

    Government said it would investigate the matter. President Jacob Zuma welcomed the probe.

    "To suggest that Zuma is not aware or was not complicit in the granting of the permission to his friends to use the airbase is just plain foolishness," said Malema.

    He alleged the Guptas controlled the government and the African National Congress.

    "It is not a fallacy that the Gupta family has tremendous control over the ANC and government and have had influence and knowledge of key decisions even before the most senior of ANC leaders are aware," he claimed.

    Malema said the close relationship between the Guptas, Zuma's family and several government officials compromised national security.

      The fact is that this is not a 'treasonous' act, but it is utterly wrong that businessmen enjoy this level of power in SA. But then it is the bed that Zuma has made for us. This fool should just shut up. He helped to get Zuma in power - So you reap what you sow. If there are any good people left in our law enforcement agencies then they need to start putting the Gupta's under closer scrutiny.
