“Duduzane Zuma was a conduit between the Guptas and government, particularly his father. He took part in awarding contracts of SOEs to Gupta-linked companies. In several cases [he] was present when bribes were offered to individuals at the Guptas’ Saxonwold residence.”
He must be investigated for any offence by facilitating acts of corruption or by facilitating bribes or by failing to report corruption that may have been committed in his presence by Mr Tony Gupta when he offered a bribe to Mr Mcebisi Jonas, Mr Mxolisi Dukwana and Mr Vusi Kona.”Chief Justice Raymond Zondo has Duduzane Ziuma at the top of his prosecution list
