Lindiwe Sisulu has no business dealings with the Guptas - Ministry

Minister has never visited the said Gupta house and has no social or business relationship with the said family

Minister Sisulu has no business with the Gupta family

The Sunday Times has decided to continue spreading the lies which started by the Economic Freedom Fighters in order to make their story juicy and perhaps to also raise their decreasing readership.

We must put it on record again that Minister Sisulu has never visited the said Gupta house and has no social or business relationship with the said family. The EFF before elections started this rumour to discredit the Minister for their small political gains after they realised they cannot lie about the successes of the human settlements sector.

The Minister is a member of the African National Congress (ANC), its National Executive Committee (NEC) and the National Working Committee (NWC). She is deployed as a Member of Parliament and the Minister of Human Settlements. Her responsibility is to deliver houses to the people of South Africa. The Minister has worked her entire life to improve the lives of all South Africans in many positions the ANC has deployed her.

She is preoccupied with restoring people’s dignity through delivery of houses and is currently attending Habitat III Conference in Ecuador to share with the United Nations Member States the progress made and successes of the South African Government in delivering over 4,3 million houses and subsidies benefitting more than twenty million people since 1994.
