NPA should be on the Gupta e-mail case, says Thuli

Former public protector Thuli Madonsela says there is enough evidence in the hundreds of thousands of leaked Gupta e-mails for the NPA to start laying down the law.
In an interview with the Sunday Times on Friday, Madonsela said she believed the NPA should be investigating the Gupta business dealings recently exposed by the media.
"I would say this gives us prima facie evidence that there is grand corruption by the Gupta family working with the president's son," she said, adding that some of the evidence suggests the information being used comes from President Jacob Zuma.
The Sunday Times previously reported that at a late-night meeting in 2009 at the president's official residence in Pretoria, Zuma told then deputy director-general of mineral resources Jacinto Rocha to assist Duduzane, "my only son involved in money".
