STATE CAPTURE – Rajesh Gupta insists he never had ‘any discussion’ with Mcebisi Jonas

South Africa

Rajesh Gupta has identified himself as the only Gupta brother who was at the family’s Saxonwold home when former deputy finance minister Mcebisi Jonas claims he was the target of an attempted R600 million bribe by the family. However, he insists that he never even spoke to him.

According to Rajesh, he insists that he only briefly walked into the room where Jonas was meeting with former president Jacob Zuma’s son‚ Duduzane Zuma and arms deal advisor Fana Hlongwane.Apparently, he did so to check on whether  Duduzane would be available the following day.

“I did not introduce myself to anybody‚ nor did I participate in that meeting. I did not have any discussion with Mr Jonas at all‚” he states in an affidavit‚ which was filed as part of his failed application to cross-examine Jonas at the ongoing state capture commission of inquiry.
