JOHANNESBURG – Home Affairs Minister Malusi Gigaba has again had to defend his role in the naturalisation of the Gupta brothers.

Gigaba was tabling his department’s budget in the National Assembly on Wednesday where opposition members of Parliament raised the issue.

Economic Freedom Fighters MP Hlengiwe Mkhaliphi accused Gigaba of lying to Parliament when granting the Guptas South African citizenship. She said the Department of Home Affairs, under Gigaba, has borne the brunt of state capture.

Mkhaliphi accused Gigaba of granting Ajay Gupta citizenship, saying it’s reflected in the voters’ roll which only lists South African citizens. Gigaba has defended himself.
