Sunday Tribune - - METRO -

THE par­lia­men­tary com­mit­tee in­ves­ti­gat­ing the early nat­u­ral­i­sa­tion of the Gup­tas will fin­ish its in­quiry be­fore year-end.

This is af­ter the com­mit­tee pressed Home Af­fairs Min­is­ter Malusi Gi­gaba this week on the role he played in help­ing the con­tro­ver­sial fam­ily.

Gi­gaba has de­nied do­ing any favour for the Gup­tas or re­ceiv­ing grat­i­fi­ca­tion from the fam­ily.

“At no stage dur­ing my ten­ure did I as­sist the Gupta fam­ily, or any other pri­vate in­ter­est group, to cap­ture the state,” Gi­gaba said.

He said the ini­tial ap­pli­ca­tion of Ajay Gupta was sub­mit­ted be­fore he be­came home af­fairs min­is­ter.
