Minister Rob Davies is said to be the next minister to be removed from his position in a Gupta-inspired cabinet shuffle by President Jacob Zuma.

This comes amid the ongoing furore regarding the role of the Gupta family in appointments of individuals to powerful positions in political office.

702's Xolani Gwala spoke to SACP Second Deputy General Secretary, Solly Mapaila, regarding the ongoing saga.

Listen to the conversation below:

All of it is surrounded by business interests who want to capture state institutions for their own interests...It involves the removal of minister Rob Davies.

Solly Mapaila, SACP Second Deputy General Secretary

When Minister Nene was removed, we didn't believe it when there were talks about it, we dismissed it.

Solly Mapaila, SACP Second Deputy General Secretary

In those areas where they have interests in, they do interfere and it's not a new thing.

Solly Mapaila, SACP Second Deputy General Secretary

The Guptas must not use the president or any of our minister as their proxies to Cabinet.
