Guptas simply allowed to run riot
NOW the Guptas apparently want to get hold of and/or control the more than R1 trillion worth of funds managed by the Public Investment Corporation (PIC). These assets include the pension monies of past and present public servants.
I am continually confused regarding the (apparent) shady dealings of the Gupta family. They have been associated with numerous claims of the hijacking of state entities. Obscene amounts of money are mentioned when these alleged hijackings are uncovered. The PIC, Eskom, Transnet, SAA, SABC and the Passenger Rail Agency of SA are apparently all in the Gupta’s sights.
My confusion: why is the Gupta family not being intensively investigated, with a view to prosecution, by the appropriate law enforcement authorities?
Enough is surely enough now. Even the most hardcore Gupta supporter must now admit that they have gone too far.
If the government is reluctant to investigate and charge them then, at least, they should deport them before they get their hands on the pension monies of the hundreds of thousands of past and present public servants.
That three people are able to destabilise the copuntry to the degree that the Gupta brothers have, without any law enforcement agency laying so much as a finger on them, perplexes me. Russell Ongley Great Brak River
