CAPE TOWN - Former African National Congress (ANC) Member of Parliament Vytjie Mentor says she fears she may have placed her family in danger for s peaking out against the Gupta family.

Mentor - a former chairperson of Parliament's Portfolio Committee on Public Enterprises - made startling revelations about being offered a ministerial job by the Gupta family six years ago.

In an interview with the Sunday Times, she spokes in detail, about the 2010 meeting at the Gupta home in Saxonwold.

Mentor says she believes has done the right thing but is still concerned.

"I worry more about my kids than about myself. I have served my country and I am still serving it. I am no longer afraid to die and even under apartheid we were not afraid to die and we knew it was dangerous."

Mentor - in explosive Facebook posts last week - detailed how the Gupta brothers told her she would replace then-Public Enterprises Minister Barbara Hogan if she agreed to give them government business.
