Controversial business family linked to President Jacob Zuma, Gupta home raided by police



South Africa's elite police unit has raided the home of a controversial business family linked to President Jacob Zuma, as pressure increases on him to stand down.

 
Officials say three people were arrested as part of an investigation into the wealthy, Indian-born Guptas.


They have been accused of using their close friendship with Mr Zuma to wield enormous political influence.


Meanwhile, Mr Zuma's party has given him until the end of the day to resign.


His links to the Guptas are one of the reasons he is being forced to resign before the 2019 general election.
The Guptas and Mr Zuma deny all allegations of wrongdoing.
