Home affairs minister Malusi Gigaba has rubbished accusations that he had a corrupt relationship with the Guptas and that he was a key player in the state capture project. Gigaba testified before parliament’s home affairs committee on Tuesday night.

The committee is investigating how members of the Gupta family, some of whom have close ties with former president Jacob Zuma, were granted citizenship even though they did not meet the requirements. Gigaba was home affairs minister from May 2014 to March 2017. He returned to the portfolio in 2018 after a stint as finance minister.
