Gupta employees chase ANCYL away from offices
This is after an open letter was sent out on behalf of workers at Gupta-owned Oakbay Investments.
MIDRAND - A group of ANN7 and Sahara employees have chased the ANC Youth League (ANCYL) from their Midrand offices after an open letter was sent out on behalf of Oakbay workers.
The letter was an appeal to all four banks to restore relations with the company, saying their livelihoods were at stake.
The Gupta-owned business is scrambling to restore banking relations following claims that the controversial family has undue political influence on President Jacob Zuma. LISTEN: Anonymous employee and Robbie Russo, general manager of Sahara Computers and Oakbay.

An angry group of New Age and ANN7 employees jeered ANCYL president Collen Maine.
They say they were not consulted on the Oakbay letter which said employees didn't care about the allegations of state capture against the Gupta family.
They refused to engage with Maine, saying this was not his battle, and that he was never there when they raised concerns of poor working conditions and low salaries.
The workers have demanded that Phuti Mosomane and Robbie Rousseau, who signed the document, retract the letter.
