Guptas’ plane has landed at Waterkloof air force base on more than one occasion
The Guptas’ use of Air Force Base Waterkloof is not just linked to their family's international wedding furore. Leaked emails seen by The Times show that the brothers' aircraft‚ ZS-OAK‚ has been chartered by the South African National Defence Force since the wedding in 2013 and has been allowed to land at the air force base since then. In 2013‚ President Jacob Zuma was linked to the scandal when it emerged that as "No. 1" he had given permission for the family to be allowed to land hundreds of guests at the base to attend the lavish wedding of Vega Gupta and her husband Aakash Jahajgarhia at Sun City. Gupta's mother is Achlar Kumar whose brothers are Ajay‚ Atul and Rajesh Gupta. Two years later‚ according to documents seen by The Times‚ ZS-OAK was back on the base‚ this time‚ according to SANDF comment on Thursday night‚ on official charter business for the military.
