Zuma to be fired; PIO al­lies raided

The Times of India (New Delhi edition) - - FRONT PAGE -

The rul­ing African Na­tional Congress un­veiled plans on Wed­nes­day to fire South African Pres­i­dent Ja­cob Zuma through a par­lia­men­tary no-con­fi­dence vote, hours af­ter cops raided the lux­ury home of his friends the Gupta broth­ers, In­di­ano­ri­gin busi­ness ty­coons, as part of an anti-graft probe.

Mean­while, Ajay and Atul, two of the three Gupta broth­ers, at­tended a Shivratri pro­ces­sion in their home­town Sa­ha­ran­pur on Tues- day, one of their cousins told TOI. They left the same day.

Wed­nes­day’s raids mark a tight­en­ing of the net around Zuma, 75, and the po­lit­i­cal fac­tion around him ac­cused of milk­ing state re­sources for their own ends.
