He got ‘dirt’ on me: Ru­pert

Weekend Post (South Africa) - - News -

Jo­hann Ru­pert, SA’s sec­on­drich­est man, said for­mer pres­i­dent Ja­cob Zuma used five agen­cies and pri­vate de­tec­tives over­seas to “get dirt” on him after he called for Zuma’s axing in 2016.

Speak­ing to share­hold­ers at in­vest­ment firm Rem­gro’s an­nual gen­eral meet­ing on Thurs­day, Ru­pert said he had been fol­low­ing the Zondo com­mis­sion of in­quiry into state cap­ture and had been shocked by its dis­clo­sures.

Zuma’s spokesper­son and lawyer did not re­spond to queries about Ru­pert’s al­le­ga­tions late on Thurs­day.
