The Democratic Alliance (DA) has laid criminal charges against President Jacob Zuma, members of the Gupta family, several cabinet ministers, senior executives of state-owned entities, and other individuals implicated in state capture.
DA leader Mmusi Maimane says those charged had committed treason, racketeering and corruption.
“We will not allow Zuma Inc to continue to steal from our people,” he said.
The 48-page indictment comes after emails leaked to two newspapers over the weekend, in which the Guptas allegedly try to engineer a getaway for Zuma by seeking residency in the United Arab Emirates.
The DA would pursue “every available avenue until the corrupt state capture project that has undermined and crippled key institutions of the state is stopped and the ANC is removed from power”.
