President Zuma's son still using Gupta family plane - records

Eyewitness News is in position of flight records showing that Duduzane Zuma has landed in Lanseria four times using the Gupta family's private plane between April and November this year.

Why was he still using the Gupta's private plane. The real point is he is still involved and has ties with Gupta family despite coming out publicly saying he was cutting those ties, especially with Oakbay Investments.

Gia Nicolaides, EWN reporter

EWN reporter Gia Nicolaides spoke to political analyst Ralph Mathekga, who said South Africans should be concerned about these ties because Zuma sources funds for his businesses from the Public Investment Corporation.

It should make us worry so much because first of all the grave offence by the Guptas is to use the taxpayer's money through their relationship with Jacob Zuma and Duduzane Zuma, to build a very controversial business empire in South Africa.

Ralph Mathekga, political analyst

But now we are going to the second level which involves the repatriation of South African capital outside South Africa.

Ralph Mathekga, political analyst

Gia says EWN has been unable to reach Oakbay, Gupta family and Duduzane Zuma for comments.
