[LISTEN] Shaun, boet, there is a lot happening around you - Stephen Grootes

British and American law enforcement agencies are investigating the Gupta family for possible links to international money laundering, while South African law enforcement agencies are sitting on their hands still.

The Financial Times reported on Thursday that British financial watchdogs are looking into links between HSBC and Standard and Chartered - and the South African-based family.

The FBI's probe will focus on Ashish and Amol Gupta, who are US citizens.

The names of 27 people including President Jacob Zuma, several of his family members, the Guptas and presidential hopeful Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma are among a list sent to British financial authorities.

These names are set to be investigated for possible links to a transnational money laundering network which includes bank accounts and global financial institutions.

Stephen Grootes questions the inaction of the National Prosecuting Authority and its boss Shaun Abrahams.

I am a little worried about you, all around you there is more and more evidence that the Guptas have bought Number 1, and there is nothing you can do about it.

And Shaun, boet, the FBI are investigating, the Brits are investigating and you are doing nothing. You are not looking good man.

I hope you have a job after December.
