Atul Gupta a registered voter - IEC
7 March 2018
Cape Town - "A certain Atul Gupta" is indeed a registered voter on the South African voters roll, the Electoral Commission of South Africa confirmed on Wednesday.
IEC deputy chairperson Terry Tselane said Gupta was properly registered at a primary school in Saxonwold.
The IEC said voters must be South African citizens and in possession of a barcoded ID or smartcard.
"This appears to be a legitimate registration," he said.
During a press conference on Tuesday, Home Affairs Minister Malusi Gigaba said the controversial Gupta brothers were not South African citizens because they refused to renounce their Indian citizenship, despite contrary evidence.
