Google Maps listed Gupta mansion as address for South African Presidency

If you typed “South African Presidency” into Google Maps, a strange new result appeared this week.

In addition to the offices at the Union Buildings in Pretoria, and Tuynhuys in Cape Town, a third address in Saxonwold Drive appeared.

The new address pointed to the Gupta mansion in Saxonwold, and appears to be a joke by local Google users in light of the reports of state capture by the Guptas.

At the time of writing, 18 reviews were listed for the location.

1-star reviews

There were numerous 1-star reviews, including the following:

“Worst privatisation of a country and president ever. I want a refund,” said Reinhard Loots.

“Previously only available in PTA, I’m glad that JHB now has a branch of the presidency too, unfortunately the service is still terrible… I hear their building branches internationally now and have legal representation in Panama with leadership help from Moscow and Dubai so hopefully things improve,” said Aaron T.
