JOHANNESBURG - President Jacob Zuma’s political career has been characterised by his ability to survive any scandal, regardless of how controversial it may be.

This time it’s the president’s cosy relationship with the Gupta family which is under the spotlight.

eNCA&39;s Phakamile Hlubi takes a look at Zuma – the Teflon president, from 2005 when his business associate and friend Schabir Shaik was found guilty of corruption and sentenced to 15 years in prison, through to this week&39;s startling revelations that the Guptas are personally making cabinet appointments.

Some say President Zuma can’t possibly survive this latest scandal ... but history tells another story.
