Gupta family threatens court action to halt DA march to home
DA leader Mmusi Maimane says the party will march to the family’s residence because it represents the capture site of President Jacob Zuma.
JOHANNESBURG – As Democratic Alliance (DA) leader Mmusi Maimane prepares to lead a march in Saxonworld this morning, the Gupta family has threatened court action to interdict the demonstration.
Maimane says the party is marching to the family’s residence because it represents the capture site of President Jacob Zuma.
The DA leader will lead the March in protest against state capture, saying the president and the Gupta family have carried out grand corruption.
But the family gave the DA until last night to cancel the march or be faced with an urgent interdict.
The Guptas says the opposition party gave it less than the required notice for the intended gathering.
It also says because a recent gathering in front of its property culminated in violence, there is a reasonable expectation that this march would also possibly turn violent.
