    Pretoria, South Africa – (African Boulevard News) – The saga surrounding the Gupta brothers, Atul and Rajesh, who are suspected to be the masterminds behind the embezzlement of $940m of state funds, continues as South African President Cyril Ramaphosa and Justice Minister Ronald Lamola disagree on how to apprehend them.

    According to sources, Ramaphosa is keen on seeking help from the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), while Lamola is hesitant about involving a foreign agency in the matter. The disagreement comes as Lamola is pushing for a more localized solution, including working with Interpol and the National Prosecuting Authority.

    The split in opinion between the two officials has caused delays in the capture of the Gupta brothers, who have been on the run since 2018. However, Ramaphosa remains adamant that they must be brought to justice.

    “The Gupta brothers must face the full might of the law, and we will not rest until they are held accountable for their actions,” said Ramaphosa in a statement.

    The Gupta brothers are believed to have used their connections to former President Jacob Zuma to secure lucrative state contracts, which they then used to siphon off millions of dollars. Their high-profile case has sparked widespread outrage, with many South Africans calling for their arrest and punishment.

    Despite the ongoing debate, some experts believe that the involvement of the FBI could be crucial in nabbing the Gupta brothers.

    “A foreign agency like the FBI has experience dealing with similar cases, and their expertise could prove invaluable in bringing the Gupta brothers to justice,” said legal expert, Sipho Nkosi.

    While the debate between Ramaphosa and Lamola continues, it remains unclear how and when the Gupta brothers will be caught. However, one thing is certain – the people of South Africa are eager for justice to be served.

    As the country grapples with corruption, many are hoping that the capture of the Gupta brothers will be a turning point in the fight against graft, bringing an end to a dark chapter in the country’s history.
