Zuma's Gupta relations questioned again

Johannesburg - President Jacob Zuma has again been grilled in Parliament about his relationship with the Gupta family.

Zuma&39;s links to the business tycoons have been questioned after hundreds of their wedding guests landed at the Waterkloof Air Force base almost two months ago.

On Wednesday, the DA&39;s Lindiwe Mazibuko asked Zuma why the Gupta family seemed to have direct contact with members of his cabinet.

Cabinet ministers have denied any wrongdoing, but the opposition is adamant more accountability is needed for the security blunder.

Zuma brushed it off, saying his cabinet has an open-door policy.

"It is because any member of the public within South Africa and beyond our borders is free to contact members of my cabinet, the executive or the public service directly. This is in line with the ethos of our administration which promotes an open and accessible government."
