The Hawks have confirmed the raid on the compound in Saxonwold north of Johannesburg and spokesperson Hangwani Mulaudzi says more raids are expected but could not elaborate as to where and when. There are reports of two arrests being made at the compound.
SACP First General Secretary, Solly Mapaila says, “We have been complaining about the Guptas and in fact we have indicated that at the core of the corruption parasitic networks in the country those that have controlled the state have stolen our national independence as people are this group of the Guptas. I had the greatest feeling this morning I’m still going to pass there. At last action has been taken.”
“There’s no doubt that South Africa will get what is due to itself of course we may not get all but it’s not just on the Estina Farm on many other issues relating to state capture and I think that there is enough evidence of wrongdoing that’s why we can’t accept any other thing apart from their prosecution,” says Mapaila.
He says he is hopefully that the evidence that has been gathered will be handled with care and not be destroyed so that it can be used effectively for their prosecution.
