- The Gupta’s IT company Sahara Computers allegedly owes a Taiwanese IT company R15 million for hardware
- The Taiwanese company has come knocking, looking for payment
- The Gupta’s company doesn’t appear to be in operation anymore
There just seems to be more drama around every corner when it comes to the Gupta’s.
The latest is a Taiwanese IT company that alleges that the Gupta-owned Sahara Computers owes them R15 million for computer hardware.
The problem is, Sahara Computers doesn’t appear to be in operation anymore.
It has been alleged that Taiwanese company Fondiversal Technology filed a suit in the High Court in Johannesburg this week for not honouring payment agreements.
This deal was apparently signed in 2015 and Sahara allegedly failed to make payment 45 days after shipment, as they were expected to.
Reports indicate that the headquarters for Sahara Computers, situated in Midrand Gauteng, has been vacant since March of this year, with the Guptas’ trying to sell the building for R50 million. They have also allegedly offered to rent it out for R400 000 per month.
When trying to get in touch with them for comment, there wasn’t a Gupta in sight.
Briefly.co.za recently featured an article called: David Mabuza says Guptas did not buy him by giving him a lift to the doctor.
In this article:
- Deputy President David Mabuza has denied claims that the Gupta family ‘bought’ him by paying for his private flight to Russia
- The Guptas paid for Mabuza to travel to Russia to receive medical treatment
- Mabuza maintained he could not have been bought by what was in effect ‘a lift to the doctor’s office’
Deputy President David Mabuza has shrugged suggestions that the Gupta family bought him because they paid for him to fly to Russia on a private jet to receive medical treatment.
A confident Mabuza said he could not be bought by what amounted to receiving ‘a lift to the doctor’s office’. Mabuza faced pointed questions from Members of Parliament (MPs) about his own relationship with the Guptas and was asked if he felt he owed the family a debt after they flew him to Russia.
He said he did not feel beholden to the Guptas at all.
