South Africa may finally get answers on the Guptagate debacle. 

President Jacob Zuma’s administration is expected to brief the media on the scandal on Sunday morning.

A briefing has been scheduled for 11am and will be attended by members of the Justice Cluster.

The briefing comes five days after government’s own deadline on a report of a probe into the whole debacle.

It was expected to shed light on how a jet full of Gupta wedding guests was allowed to land at Waterkloof Air Force Base.

But eNCA reliably understands that an investigation by a team of Directors general is placing most of the blame on the Head of State Protocol Bruce Koloane.

It's apparently found out that Koloane gave the order for the Gupta’s entourage to receive diplomatic privileges.
