      The veracity of the emails has not even been confirmed yet but the DA is using them as the basis of a court case. Its nice to have money and resources hey?

    What intrigues me about this email issue is, are South Africans so naive as to believe such a lame story? On a daily basis we hear of hacking, phishing, wikileaks etc, who on earth is so stupid as to discuss such a delicate matter over the internet? If we are to believe everything that the Media says about President JZ’s close relationship with the Guptas, Duduzane Zuma’s close working relationship with the Guptas, was it not possible for these people to arrange private meetings amongst themselves to discuss this? If the Guptas and Duduzane can arrange a meeting with Mcebisi Jonas privately in Saxonwold and not use emails, why then are we to believe that they chose to talk to No 1 using emails? Am awaiting explanation and answers. This is the much awaited outcome from our judiciary.

      Dear Lele

      You make very interesting observations. I find it bizarre that someone like Mzwanele Manyi, who is connected with Ministers, would want to take his CV to Guptas to place him at a board of a company. I also find it intriguing that Brian Molefe, for example, said to be in the Gupta back-pocket, didn’t send any emails.

      We must however wait and see if Guptas challenge the veracity of the emails. We wait and see….

    I fail to understand why Maimane has kept quit and never responded to recent information on Treasurey being captured under Pravin and Nene.

    Keep up good work PK on information you have given to us on this platform.

      Thanks Fortune. I fail to understand why you fail to understand (hahaha) that capital favours its own. Pravin is their man. Everything will be done to protect him.
