Shock as South Africa's Zuma Calls Kathrada Letter Fake

Late Ahmed Kathrada was a struggle stalwart and close friend of late former president Nelson Mandela. He served a 20-year jail term on Robben Island and Pollsmoor Prisons for treason and was released in 1990. Kathrada wrote a letter to President Jacob Zuma asking him to resign. This followed reports of his links to the Gupta family who were implicated in the state capture report by former public protector Thuli Madonsela. The report described them as having an influence on the president and his decisions regarding appointments to key ministerial positions, among others.
