Jacob Zuma ‘apologised for delaying Guptas’
State capture commission hears how the former president had to abandon a meeting with cabinet ministers for a two-and-a-half-hour talkfest with the Guptas
Former president Jacob Zuma was forced to leave his ministers waiting at a cabinet meeting to attend to the Guptas and was "apologetic" for having kept the family waiting, the state-capture commission heard on Monday.
The commission also heard that the Guptas bragged about Zuma’s loyalty and that he would always defend them. It was told that the Gupta brothers and the president had "laughed heartily" about the Waterkloof landing scandal.
