The Central African president Faustin Archange Touadéra recently travelled to Dehradun to meet the Gupta brothers, who have applied for asylum in his country to escape prosecution in South Africa.
The Gupta brothers, Atul and Rajesh who wants to demonstrate the range of their connections to President Faustin-Archange Touade, organised a meeting for him with an Indian investor presenting himself as a vice president of India's Bharatiya Janata Party.
The Gupta brothers are not actually in custody in the UAE and have used their South African passports to travel and do business. They were last spotted in Switzerland.
None of South Africa's recent attempts to make contact with the UAE regarding the Gupta brothers have been successful. South African authorities are no longer sure that the two businessmen are being held in Dubai and are concerned that they may be granted asylum in central Africa.
Currently living in exile in Dubai and under threat of being extradited to South Africa, where they are wanted on charges of embezzlement, the Guptas are seeking a safe haven in the centre of the continent.
In the end, the president of South Africa did not return to an autonomous Ministry of State Security. As a result, a novice in the intelligence sector with little chance of moving forward with reform now oversees the State Security Agency.
The US consulting firm, which admitted involvement in embezzling funds from state-owned firms Eskom and Transnet, hopes to work again in South Africa's public sector. But this time it plans to do so free of charge within a corporate social responsibility framework.
A court in Gaborone has issued a warrant for the arrest of Botswana's ex-president, who is currently living in South Africa. But for both legal and political reasons, Pretoria has no intention of facilitating the task of its neighbour.
Jacob Zuma a dû renoncer à poursuivre devant les tribunaux le ministre de la justice et allié du président actuel, Ronald Lamola par crainte de ne pouvoir assumer les frais de justice, alors qu'il veut également lancer une procédure contre Cyril Ramaphosa.
South Africa could soon be placed under enhanced scrutiny by the international anti-money laundering and counter-terrorism financing organisation. The Ministry of Finance's slow response to the FATF's report has been blamed for this.
The Jacob G Zuma Foundation is struggling to find a producer to make a film about the former apartheid fighter and ex-president of South Africa.
Most of the changes at the top of foreign missions are in Africa and involve both career diplomats and political appointees.
The appointment of Deputy Chief Justice Mandisa Maya to the highest court in South Africa on 1st September is shaking up the informal organisation put in place by Chief Justice Raymond Zondo. He is set to retire in 2024.
Although the extradition request for Atul and Rajesh Gupta has been sent to the UAE, concerns are growing about the NPA's ability to bring this sensitive case to trial.
The Hawks suspect the possible complicity of a VIP protection unit in the break-ins at the residences of two ministers and political allies of the president. Fearing a campaign to undermine him, Ramaphosa has moved to overhaul this unit.
With the ANC's five-yearly national conference due to take place in December, the South African president has been weakened by a scandal involving money stolen from one of his farms. At a recent meeting, his inner circle raised its concerns.
Ajay Gupta has avoided arrest with Pretoria's blessing, while his two younger brothers are being held in Dubai over a major state graft scandal in South Africa. Sources say the eldest brother's cooperation aided his siblings' arrest.
To help the underfunded National Prosecuting Authority deal with the Zondo cases, the Department of Justice has called on the private sector. But discussions are currently at a standstill.
The delivery date of the full Zondo report has been pushed back again, this time to 15 June. In the run-up to the ANC congress, these repeated postponements are providing President Cyril Ramaphosa with several advantages in his bid for re-election.
The third instalment of the explosive Zondo report calls for ANC chairperson Gwede Mantashe to be prosecuted. The timing is unfortunate for Cyril Ramaphosa, who cannot afford to ditch his precious ally before the party's key congress in December.
Justice Minister Ronald Lamola hopes to become one of the ANC's top six at the party's elective conference in December. The 38-year-old, who is in charge of several highly sensitive legal cases, has the confidence of President Cyril Ramaphosa.
South Africa's Financial Intelligence Centre, which is currently being audited by the Financial Action Task Force, has been caught up in the score-settling inside the presidential ANC party.
