'How the Guptas offered me a ministerial job'...

Deputy Minister of Finance, Mcebisi Jonas confirmed in a statement that the Gupta family offered him the job of Finance Minister, which he says he refused.

See the Deputy Minister of Finance's statement below:

Members of the Gupta family offered me the position of Minister of Finance to replace then-Minister Nene. I rejected this out of hand. The basis of my rejection of their offer is that it makes a mockery of our hard earned democracy, the trust of our people and no one apart from the President of the Republic appoints ministers.
