[WATCH] 'They prostituted themselves and our country for Dubai'

The South African Revenue Services (SARS) and the Assets Forfeiture Unit conducted a raid at the Gupta compound in Saxonwold on Monday.

The raid aims to recoup more than R200m of public funds that were meant for the Free State Estina dairy project.

Breakfast Show host Bongani Bingwa warns those in high power roles and who have been implicated in the Gupta-related investigations are next.

Bingwa further says people will not be silent until those implicated face the music as well.

READ: Eskom wants to recoup from us money it spent on Gupta mines – Bruce Whitfield

Corruption is a two way relationship. Actually it's more accurately described as an orgy but at the very least, there are two sides, those after the money and those who release it.

Bongani Bingwa, Breakfast Show host

Quite clearly it's a quid pro quo - it is an exchange for something - you scratch my back and I will scratch yours. We have been down this road before - Shabir Shaik didn't bribe himself. Neither did the Guptas do any wrong BY themselves.

So what about the enablers? Their political partners? This cannot just be about the Guptas - although that is obviously a welcome start. Their honchos - their errand boys, their tea girls - because that is what they were in selling their souls.

Bongani Bingwa, Breakfast Show host

Their Johns and Janes - what of them? Let them at least rest in the knowledge that they prostituted themselves and our country in aiding this. And for what? First class tickets to Dubai? Massage parlours in the Orient? Qha??? That's it? But we will not be silent until they too face the music.
