[LISTEN] BLF leader labels Gupta emails 'fake news'
702's Stephen Grootes spoke to BLF leader Andile Mngxitama on claims that he asked the Gupta family for money to fund his party.
CAPE TOWN - "No, that's absolute nonsense based on a clearly coordinated strategy to attack whoever is opposed to white monopoly capital."
This was the response from Black First Land First (BLF) leader Andile Mngxitama on claims that he asked the Gupta family for money to fund his party.
This follows a joint amaBhungane and Daily Maverick expose on the extent of the Gupta family’s dealings with state-owned enterprises, with fresh email leaks revealing how the family has been pocketing billions of rand through dubious transactions.
The leaked emails between the Guptas and others have also shown how Mngxitama, one of the family's most vocal supporters, had asked them for cash in 2016.
Talk Radio 702's Stephen Grootes interviewed Mngxitama. Listen to the audio above for more details.
