S.Africa police raid house of Zuma’s allies in graft probe: official

Johannesburg (AFP) – South African police on Wednesday raided the Johannesburg house of the Gupta family, which is accused of playing a central role in alleged corruption under scandal-tainted President Jacob Zuma.

“We have now left the compound. It is an operation that is ongoing related to issues of ‘state capture’,” police spokesman Hangwani Mulaudzi told AFP referring to the alleged corruption of state institutions.

Zuma has been ordered to resign by the ruling ANC party, and is expected to respond to the order later Wednesday.
