JOHANNESBURG – A group of former senior civil servants is calling for an independent public inquiry into President Jacob Zuma’s relationship with the Gupta family.
They want allegations of state capture investigated.
All 27 members of the group were directors general in the government.
They’ve signed a letter sent to the Presidency, as well as to the ministers of finance and public service and administration.
The memorandum calls for a probe into all senior officials who had business relations with the Guptas.
They’ve also urged the Treasury to investigate the family’s possible involvement in the illicit flow of money out of South Africa.
Signatories include Themba Maseko, Frank Chikane and Mavuso Msimang.
