EFF welcomes Gupta's decision to sell all SA shares with caution
The EFF says the party will wait to see if the shares will be sold to honest and trustworthy citizens.
JOHANNESBURG - The Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) says it welcomes, with caution, the Gupta family's announcement to sell all its shares in South Africa by the end of the year.
Yesterday, the controversial family released a statement saying the decision will be beneficial for the country.
The family also claimed that its local management team had grown exponentially since their decision to step down from executive and non-executive positions earlier this year.
The EFF's Fana Mokoena says they will keep a close eye on the sale of the shares because they believe the Guptas and all those who have ties with them cannot be trusted.
"We don't trust the Guptas and their puppets and the president and his sons... as long as the country can move forward."
He says they hope once the family has left the country order will be restored in the public sector.
"The Guptas have confused the public sector by appointing ministers. We are hoping that when they leave we can start from a clean slate."
Mokoena says the party will wait to see if the shares will be sold to honest and trustworthy citizens.
