The ANC was not captured- Mantashe

The ANC’s National Chairperson, Gwede Mantashe, says the party was never captured by the Gupta family, but some ANC members were.

He was giving evidence at the State Capture Commission in Johannesburg yesterday.

Mantashe has admitted that, there were stories in the media about individual ANC leaders being captured by the Guptas, but says it was purely individuals, and not the ANC as a whole.

He insists that during his tenure as the Secretary General of the ANC, not once has a Gupta family member paid him a visit in his office at the party’s headquarters, Luthuli House.
