Minister: Guptas could be investigated


Cape Town: Investigations into the illegal landing of a private jet at the Waterkloof Air Force Base could include looking into the role the Gupta family played in the saga, Justice Minister Jeff Radebe said on Friday.
A committee of directors general had been given seven working days to complete a probe and report to Cabinet on how the jet was allowed to illegally land at the airforce base in Pretoria.
"We have given strict instructions to the committee of DGs... if people outside the structures of government are implicated, that process must take its course, whoever they are," Radebe told a media briefing in Pretoria.
The jet chartered by the wealthy and politically-connected Gupta family landed at the base - a national key point - on Tuesday.
It was carrying guests to the wedding of Vega Gupta, 23, to Indian-born Aaskash Jahajgarhia at Sun City, North West.
The Gupta's own The New Age newspaper and Sahara Computers.
