In further developments in the “Gupta-gate” scandal, our sources tell us that the Guptas’ tentacles extended into rugby administration. Even the Bok has succumbed to the charms of president Zuma’s sugar daddy family.
By virtue of their “close relationship” with president Zuma, the Guptas were provided with the following “special favours”, courtesy of South African rugby administrators:
– A few Guptas were given a guided tour of the SARFU offices in Cape Town where they were presented with an autographed poster signed by Coenie Oosthuizen himself.
– A pair of Jannie Du Plessis’ shorts that he wore against the All Blacks
– Actual replica tshirt of the Cheetahs 2012 Super 15 jersey
– An impromptu “ball skills” demonstration on how to be an effective fly-half by Brok Harris.
Is nothing sacred anymore?
