It said the charges were aimed at the four specifically because they were at the heart of the state capture scandals that have gripped the country.

Next week, President Jacob Zuma faces a vote of no confidence, fuelled by accusations of financial corruption on a gargantuan scale.

OUTA's Chief Operating Officer, Ben Theron, said in a statement that the charges were in connection with allegations of state capture, adding that the charges are "designed for combating organised crime". Indeed, not only have they submitted sworn affidavits to the contrary, but they say the media is in the hands of a "white monopoly capital", which is hell-bent on tarnishing their name, along with a few old white families who ensure their business is stymied at every turn.

On Wednesday one of the Gupta brothers, Atul, told BBC Radio 4 that he knew nothing about the state capture allegations leveled against his family.

Former Eskom board members Ben Ngubane and Collin Matjila are also on the list along with former Eskom executives Brian Molefe and Anoj Singh.

"The Guptas benefited from numerous high-value deals including getting the enormous R5.3 billion kickback from Transnet's locomotive deal and a R66 million kickback from Neotel arising from a Transnet deal", said Theron.
