Jacob Zuma denies moving GCIS head after he butted heads with the Guptas
Zuma could not recall making a call to Themba Maseko to give him instructions to ‘help’ the Gupta family, but does not dispute that he might have made it
Former president Jacob Zuma has denied he was responsible for the transfer of former government communications head Themba Maseko, who said he was axed for defying attempts to be bullied by one of the Gupta brothers.
Zuma says Maseko’s claims that he instructed minister in the presidency Collins Chabane to transfer or dismiss him in January 2011 are “fishy”. Chabane died in a car accident in 2015.
