Maimane: Guptas captured Zuma, who captured ANC, state
DA leader Mmusi Maimane led a march against state capture to the Gupta family's Saxonworld compound.
JOHANNESBURG - Democratic Alliance (DA) leader Mmusi Maimane has told supporters that the Gupta family did not capture the state, saying they captured President Jacob Zuma, who in turn captured the state and the African National Congress (ANC).
Maimane led a march against state capture on Thursday to the family's Saxonworld compound.
The family obtained an interdict forbidding the opposition party from getting within 900 metres of their home.
Maimane says Zuma allowed himself to be captured by the Guptas.
“Because the Guptas did not capture the state, don’t make that mistake. They captured Jacob Zuma, who captured the state and the ANC.”
He says they marched today because they want the family and the president to go to jail.
“The Guptas must swap their suits for orange overalls. Instead of a wedding at Sun City, they must go to jail in Sun City.”
The DA has planted placards outside the compound which read 'Zuma’s capture site'.
