CAPE TOWN - South African Communist Party (SACP) leader Blade Nzimande says the relationship the Gupta family has built with some of the country's leaders is toxic.

Nzimande was speaking at the National Union of Mineworker (NUM)'s central committee meeting in Centurion in Gauteng yesterday.

The SACP leader says anyone who uses their ties with leaders to benefit their business activities must be addressed.

"Anyone, Gupta or no Gupta, who is behaving in this manner must not be allowed to do so."

He says speaking out against relationships the Gupta family has formed is not a criticism of President Jacob Zuma.

"We don't say this to attack President Zuma, but it's because we are seeing something wrong in the manner they are behaving."

Nzimande has called on workers to use the voice they have to speak up when they see things going wrong, especially within the African National Congress (ANC).
