President Jacob Zuma will be in Parliament today in a question and answer session with Members of Parliament within revelations that the Gupta family had been trying to influence Cabinet appointments. President Zuma is expected in the National Assembly Chamber in the afternoon at 14:00.

This follows Deputy Minister of Finance Mcebisi Jonas's confirmation on Wednesday that he was offered the finance ministry job by the Guptas.

However, Jonas said he rejected the offer. The Gupta family denied meeting Jonas and accused him of lying. The family has challenged Jonas to provide proof of the meeting. The presidency is yet to comment on the matter.

Opposition parties are calling for a judicial inquiry into the Gupta family’s involvement in affairs of state and say that Parliament should also launch its own investigation.
