    Gupta plane saga presents ANC with tough questions: Analyst

    Post by Nameless on Wed May 22, 2013 8:28 am

    Political analyst, Ebrahim Fakir says that if the ruling ANC looks carefully at the reasons why former President Thabo Mbeki was recalled, the party will find that many of those reasons are evident in the Gupta saga.
    Speaking on SAFM’s AM Live this morning, Fakir says the media conference to announce the findings of the investigation into how a private jet landed at WaterKloof Air Force Base in Pretoria, left more questions than answers. He adds that the findings of the investigation show that the State is not a “rule-bound organisation,” but is one where influence can be used to reach desired goals. According to Fakir, the Gupta plane incident also poses questions about the workings of cadre deployment.
    An investigation by a team of Directors General into the landing of a jet carrying wedding guests of the Gupta family at the military base found that President Jacob Zuma’s name(along with the names of other ministers) was used to secure the base for the Gupta’s landing. The findings were announced on Sunday by Justice Minister Jeff Radebe.
    The full report of the investigation is due to be released sometime this week. - edited by Bongi Mogale
