The Sunday Times says Lamola will be joined by among others NPA head, Shamila Batohi, and Public Service and Administration Minister Senzo Mchunu.

Should the delegation achieve its mission, the Gupta brothers would face a criminal trial in the country.

Ajay Gupta, Atul Gupta, and Rajesh Gupta, who had close ties with former President Jacob Zuma, have been implicated in milking the country of millions of rands.
