The leader of South Africa's opposition Democratic Alliance Party, Mmusi Maimane was ordered out of parliament on Thursday after calling on President Jacob Zuma to resign in the wake of allegations that a wealthy family close to him had influence over political appointments.

Maimane wanted answers after Deputy Finance Minister, Jonas Mcebisi said on Wednesday that members of the Gupta family, who have close ties to Zuma, offered him a ministerial job last year.
