African National Congress (ANC) Deputy Secretary-General, Jessie Duarte says there is a general perception that ANC leaders and their families are corrupt.
Duarte was speaking to SABC News ahead of the party’s elective conference which starts in Johannesburg on Saturday. Duarte’s son has been linked to Gupta owned Sahara computers.
Speaking to the SABC, Duarte says their children are persecuted for their independent business decisions.
“You as a person, you are corrupt because your child is looking at business with people that other people may not like.”
When asked if her children were linked to the Gupta’s.
Duarte answered, “Yes. He isn’t in fact. So he goes to India he meets the Sahara people because they are a big player in the IT world. He comes back here he meets them here they have conversations, they talk and that ends up being said Jessie Duarte is corrupt. I have never taken anything that I haven’t worked for from any human being and I hope somebody who has found that I have will tell me.”
