The Gupta family said today in a statement that it welcomes the decision of the ANC to investigate the alleged capture of the state by any business entities.
In response to the release of the ‘Statement of the African National Congress following the National Executive Committee meeting held 18-20 March’, the Gupta family said:
“The Gupta family welcomes the decision of the ANC to investigate the alleged capture of the state by any business entities.
“We welcome this process which should ultimately allow the truth to be recognised and end this current trial by innuendo and slander. We will fully cooperate with the Office of the Secretary General during the information gathering process.
“We reiterate our support for the country’s Constitution and the rule of law and believe state capture from any quarter should be condemned. We remain committed to the overall well-being of South Africa and all its citizens.”
The family said it would be inappropriate for them to comment any further until publication of the findings.
That statement was distributed by APO (African Press Organization) on behalf of the Gupta’s Oakbay Investments.
