- The bounty has been increased to a whopping R1.4-million in an effort to draw out any information which would lead to the arrest of the Duduzane and the Guptas
- The money will come from an NGO called Forensics for Justice and the CEO of Sygnia, Magda Wierzycka
- This comes after the Hawks raided the Guptas properties last week in the wake of Jacob Zuma's resignation as state president
One of South Africa's most influential and richest woman has her claws out for Duduzane Zuma and the Gupta brothers. Magda Wierzycka, CEO of Sygnia, is a fierce opponent of corruption and state capture.
Recently a non-profit organisation, Forensics for Justice, placed a bounty of R100 000 on information which would lead to the arrest of Duduzane and the three Gupta brothers, Ajay, Atul and Tony. A further R100 000 would be paid if the same information led to the arrest of all four together bringing the potential total to R500 000.
Wierzycka was inspired by the concept and matched the bounty bringing it up to R1-million.
Briefly.co.za has confirmed that the bounty has been increased by a further R400 000. Wierzycka is prepared to offer R200 000 to the first of Ajay Gupta's bodyguards that phones in with information according to the citizen.co.za.
She has also promised a further R200 000 to any of the eight accused in the Vrede Dairy Farm investigation to turn state witness.
“A bounty is a concept of hunting for people. The idea here is that people keep their eyes open and report Duduzane [Zuma] and the Guptas if spotted to the authorities so there is an arrest. This is not people hunting for criminals and people taking law into their own hands
“I don’t believe that they are walking around in shopping malls. There are people hiding them, there are people shielding them. From my information I know that they are protected by bodyguards, they and their families and anybody else who might be sheltering these people can assist. It is an appeal to those,” she said.
She doesn't believe that they have fled to other countries such as Dubai but may have been smuggled into one of SA's neighbours such as Lesotho or Swaziland.
