DA mounts pressure on Parliament to probe state capture saga

The Democratic Alliance (DA) has mount pressure in Parliament to launches an investigation into state capture.

The Democratic Alliance (DA) seek an investigation into state capture reports.

DA Chief Whip John Steenhuisen says the party will on Wednesday submit filled documents in an attempt to request an investigation into state capture report.

DA leader Mmusi Maimane already submitted a motion for a state capture investigation two weeks ago.

Steenhuisen also urged opposition parties to support the motion towards allegations of the state capture reports.

This comes after recently linked emails between the Gupta family and their employees, which apparently shows how the family obtained business from government.

According to EWN, the City Press had reported that the family pulled favors with senior officials with a plan to move President Jacob Zuma and his family to Dubai.

It’s understood that the emails reveal how the controversial family lured senior government officials to take over departments and state-owned entities.

The content of the emails apparently includes a draft letter from Zuma addressed to Abu Dhabi crown prince Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed al-Nahyan, in which he asks for patronage in his bid to make the United Arab Emirates a second home.

Mineral Resource Minister Mosebenzi Zwane has also been featured in the emails.

His CV was allegedly sent to the Guptas for consideration two months before being appointed to the position.

The Gupta family responded to the reports based on internal e-mails, labeling the reports as fake news.
