‘All finance ministers have been captured by white monopoly capital’
Julius Malena says Pravin Gordhan’s private interests in business need attention.
JOHANNESBURG - Economic freedom Fighters (EFF) leader Julius Malema claims that all finance ministers including Pravin Gordhan have been captured by what he calls white monopoly capital and the Guptas are not the only wealthy family influencing the African National Congress (ANC).
The party held its central command team meeting at the weekend and gave feedback at its headquarters in Braamfontein today.
Malema has commended the Occupy Luthuli House protesters but says nothing can save the ANC any more.
Malema says while he believes the Hawks case against Gordhan is bogus and amounts to mere politicking, the minister's private interests in business do need attention.

He says it's a conflict of interest that previous finance ministers also grappled with.
Malema says Gordhan is setting a bad precedent by not presenting himself to the Hawks.
