The man asked Gupta when he would be returning to South Africa. Gupta then joked, saying, "With a sore heart?"

"They&39;re not giving a reply. The day they give a reply I&39;ll go there," he continues.

This is the first sighting since Ajay Gupta fled the country in late February. He is wanted for corruption related to the Estina Dairy Farm project.
