'It seems Jacob Zuma is not in charge, the Guptas are'

Parliament began preparations for its inquiry into state capture on Tuesday.

The SA Council of Churches (SACC), the Organisation Undoing Tax Abuse (Outa) and the Public Affairs Research Institute briefed the Public Enterprises Committee.

Outa detailed its allegations against a number of specific individuals at Eskom.

It also said it has evidence that load-shedding in 2008 and 2014 was self-inflicted by Eskom as part of its corrupt practices.

Sumitra Nydoo (in for Bruce Whitfield on The Money Show) interviewed Financial Mail Deputy Editor Sikhonathi Mantshantsha.

Listen to the interview in the audio below (and/or scroll down for quotes from it).

Parliament said it will summon the Guptas.

Jacob Zuma himself must be called to testify.

It seems he [Jacob Zuma] is not in charge, the Guptas are. There is no way he doesn’t know what’s going on.
