South Africa Violence: After the arrest of former President Jacob Zuma in South Africa, there is a war-like situation there. The rioters have looted here and so far 72 people have died. The lives of 13 lakh Indians living here are also in danger in this fire of violence. In view of the latest developments, Indian External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar has met the Foreign Minister of South Africa. The Gupta brothers living in UP have also had a close relationship with this entire controversy in South Africa.
People of the Indian community say that people of Indian origin are being deliberately targeted in Johannesburg and KwaZulu Natal. He says that 1.3 million Indians living in South Africa are not in danger yet, but the situation seems to be moving in that direction. He had requested the government to send security forces for help, but no one has been sent. There are incidents of arson and looting with Indians and people of Indian origin living here. President Ramaposa, in his address to the nation, said that taking advantage of the situation, looting is being done. He has described these incidents as criminal.
Zuma looted revenue while in office
Witnesses say Indian shops, homes and businesses are being set on fire. Apart from this, petrol bombs have been thrown at them. The number of Indians is very less, due to which they are not able to face these rioters. The police have not been given the right to fire, due to which their lives are in danger. Here this whole controversy started after the sentence of 15 months imprisonment to Jacob Zuma. 79-year-old Zuma is accused of looting government revenue while in office between 2009 and 2018. Zuma has been convicted of contempt of court for not cooperating with the investigation.
Gupta Brothers accused of corruption
The Gupta Brothers, originally from Uttar Pradesh, India, are also involved in these corruption cases. These people are currently living in UAE. The Gupta brother is also involved in the fifty billion rand corruption case in which Zuma has been accused. These brothers had a close association with Zuma, due to which they carried out corruption on a large scale. The Gupta family also allegedly benefited Zuma’s children. However, the government has started action for their extradition.
