Johannesburg - Deputy Finance Minister Mcebisi Jonas has confirmed that the politically connected Gupta family offered him the job of minister.
"Members of the Gupta family offered me the position of Minister of Finance to replace then-Minister Nene," he said in a statement on Wednesday.
"I rejected this out of hand. The basis of my rejection of their offer is that it makes a mockery of our hard earned democracy, the trust of our people and no one apart from the President of the Republic appoints ministers."
