Ajay, Atul, and Rajesh Gupta, three fugitive businessmen of Indian descent, were involved in corrupt operations, according to Economic Freedom Fighters leader Julius Malema on Saturday. The Gupta brothers have strenuously disputed claims that they utilised their close relationship with Zuma to gain financial advantage and sway important appointments.

Two of the three Gupta brothers, Rajesh, 51, and Atul, 53, were sent red warnings by Interpol in June after they left South Africa with their families as part of an investigation into allegations that they stole billions of rands from state-owned businesses while Jacob Zuma was president. The UAE government received a formal request from the South African government on July 25 asking for Atul and Rajesh Gupta's extradition from Dubai.
