Zuma on Monday admitted to setting up the meeting between the Guptas and Mcebisi Jonas, says EWN reporter Theto Mahlakoana.

Duduzane Zuma on Monday admitted to setting up the meeting between the Guptas and Mcebisi Jonas, the former deputy Minister of Finance.

He defended the meeting at the Gupta compound in Saxonwold, saying it was held there due to proximity and times issues, despite himself having a house a mere 600 metres away.

I have conducted many meetings at the Gupta place… my residence was purely a private residence for my stay…

Zuma is at the state capture commission of inquiry.

In March, Jonas testified that Zuma drove him to the Guptas’ house where they offered him the position of Finance Minister and R600 million to do their bidding.

Clement Manyathela interviewed EWN reporter Theto Mahlakoana.

He [Zuma] told them [state capture commission] it was the norm that he conducted meetings at the Gupta household…
