Johannesburg - South Africa is still being kept in the dark about the Gupta scandal.

Government was supposed to report back on Tuesday on what has become known as Guptagate.

But officials have barely scratched the surface and have been given more time.

A preliminary investigation into the matter blamed the suspended head of state protocol, Bruce Koloane.

Justice Minister Jeff Radebe initially said a team of directors general was given seven working days to investigate.

“Be patient, in seven days we'll be able to come with answers... because the answers are there,” he said on May 3, but the nation is still waiting for answers.

South African president Jacob Zuma was in Eldorado Park on Tuesday to tackle drug abuse in the area and the president left before journalists could ask him about Guptagate.

The Executive Director of the Ahmed Kathrada Foundation, Neshaan Bolton says it's in government's best interest to release the report on the Guptas as soon as possible.

"I think that this issue has, for the first time there's almost national consensus that this is something that should not have happened. It has incensed the public and if a party is serious about this election, they would realise that this issue needs to be explained in the detail that would satisfy public opinion."
