JOHANNESBURG – The EFF is planning legal action against Finance Minister Malusi Gigaba for granting the Gupta family citizenship while he was home affairs minister.

He overturned the decision of his director-general to deny the controversial family's bid, saying it did not comply with the law.

The EFF says Gigaba's "favours" need to be corrected and the Guptas, like all foreigners seeking citizenship, should be subjected to due process.

Gigaba granted the family what he called "early naturalisation".

While the Citizenship Amendment Act allows for this, opposition parties believe it was an abuse of power.
