Mabuza's frequent visits to Russia shady, dubious

David Mabuza is an enigma. He has been linked to a number of allegations including having his own private army, political assassinations, tender irregularities and hoarding vast amounts of cash.

He has visited Russia on a few occasions, allegedly with the help of the Guptas offering their private jet.

In his latest visit, his office has stated it is a routine medical check-up. Why travel to Russia for a routine check-up? This seems shady and dubious.

Could these medical visits be about appeasing the Russians with a new deal now that nuclear has been taken off the table? We cannot allow our country to be held to ransom by any foreign power.
