How Gigaba broke the rules to give the Guptas citizenship
'I have decided by the virtues of the powers vested in me under the South African Citizenship Amendments Act to waive the residential requirements'
Former Home Affairs Minister Malusi Gigaba appears to have bent over backwards to ensure that the Gupta family were irregularly granted citizenship‚ letters released by the EFF suggest. An immigration expert on Monday called the apparent early granting of citizenship highly suspicious and the EFF now says it will go to court to have the Guptas’ citizenship revoked. Gigaba and the Guptas have yet to comment on the documents. The department says it is trying to verify their authenticity‚ but The Times has located correspondence within the thousands of leaked Gupta emails which supports their authenticity.
