JOHANNESBURG - The Helen Suzman Foundation is leading a lawsuit against President Jacob Zuma, members of his cabinet and the Gupta brothers.

The foundation reveals that the civil claim aims to recover billions of rands it says was stolen from Eskom.

The papers filed at the North Gauteng High Court include Finance Minister Malusi Gigaba and Public Enterprises Minister Lynne Brown as the respondents.

Fed up with the lack of progress made against those implicated in state capture allegations by the National Prosecuting Authority, the civil society group wants alleged looters to personally pay back the money, and put it back into the fiscus.

Apart from recovering money, other relief sought will be asking the court to declare the respondents guilty of failing to report corruption as required under the Prevention and Combating of Corrupt Activities Act.
