South Africa: Controversial Gupta family home raided by police

 

Two people have been arrested in a raid on the home of the controversial Gupta family in South Africa as part of a government influencing investigation.

 

The wealthy India-born Gupta family have been accused of "state capture" - using their friendship with President Zuma to wield enormous political influence for their business interests.

 

Both Mr Zuma and the Guptas deny the allegations made against them.

 

Mr Zuma is under pressure to resign, in part because of links to the Guptas, reports BBC.

 

The Hawks, South Africa's priority crime unit, confirmed they were searching the Gupta's walled compound near Johannesburg zoo on Wednesday morning.

 

The embattled Gupta family, who own a range of businesses in South Africa, have been accused of using their influence and relationship with Mr Zuma to access millions of dollars of government contracts, reports BBC.
