Deputy Finance Minister says, it’s up to society to fight against turning SA into a rogue state

 Deputy Finance Minister Mcebesi Jonas, who this week accused the Gupta family of offering him a ministerial role, urged vigilance against rogue elements that threaten the state’s sanctity.
 “It’s up to society to speak out against those elements that will turn South Africa into a rogue state he said on Saturday at a post-budget breakfast hosted by accountancy firm Morar Inc in Pietermaritzburg,”
 Jonas this week said “the Guptas, businessmen close to President Jacob Zuma, had offered him the job of finance minister before Nhlanhla Nene was sacked in December”.
 He said he rejected their approach. Leaders of the ruling African National Congress are meeting this weekend in part to discuss the matter; while both Zuma and the Guptas have denied wrongdoing, the ANC said it’s taking the allegations very seriously. Jonas declined to comment on the Guptas on Saturday
