As vocal as ever, the Economic Freedom Fighters spoke up about Minister of Public Enterprises, Pravin Gordhan, and his recently leaked testimony.
According to the testimony, Gordhan admitted to meeting with the Gupta family.
And according to Julius Malema, Gordhan is sitting in the pockets of the notorious family.
A report by The Citizen indicates that the EFF also said Tiso Blackstar - the owners of Sunday Times, Business Day, Financial Mail, The Sowetan, and BDLive - is Gordhan's "propagandists".
The EFF called Gordhan a master manipulator and accomplice to the activities of the Guptas.
In the leaked affidavit, Pravin Gordhan admits to meeting Ajay and Tony Gupta, as reported on earlier by Briefly.co.za.
Gordhan said he was introduced to Ajay by former president, Jacob Zuma and detailed how he met the Guptas. He admitted he met with the controversial family more than once.
