The ANC Youth League (ANCYL) says it will call for the Deputy Minister of Finance Mcebisi Jonas to be recalled.
The league has questioned his motives for disclosing publicly that he was offered a job by the Gupta family.
The party’s national executive committee is due to discuss the alleged “capture of the ANC and government” by the family.
This comes as the family has been linked to the appointment of certain cabinet ministers.
ANC Youth League spokesperson Mlondi Mkhize says, “We want the Minister’s head on a block. We call for the Deputy Minister of Finance to be recalled with immediate effect.”
In a surprise move, Mkhize has challenged the Gupta family to stop using President Zuma’s name.
“We call on the Gupta family to stop using President Jacob Zuma’s name to gain business contracts in South Africa. Indeed this is no different from name dropping with an intention of intimidating people for their own personnel enrichment.”
