The UAE authorities confirmed the arrest of the two brothers, Atul and Rajesh Gupta, who are among the most wanted in South Africa, on charges of corruption.

The two were accused of paying bribes to secure government contracts and influencing cabinet appointments in a scandal that tainted the administration of former South African President Jacob Zuma.

They are also believed to be involved in corruption deals at power utility Eskom and Transcent Railway.

Zuma and the Gupta brothers deny any wrongdoing.
