OUTA's Dominique Msibi says Muthambi has shared confidential information with the controversial Gupta family.

"She knowingly and deliberately shared three confidential Cabinet memoranda, through emails with Tony Gupta, Duduzane Zuma and Sahara's CEO Ashu Chawla. These people should never have been privy to any ministerial communication and policy discussions," says Msibi.

Msibi says Muthambi's conduct is not what is expected from a Minister.

 "She appointed (Hlaudi) Motsoeneng, who was instrumental in funding the ANN7 Breakfast Show, although ANN7 is a competitor to SABC and for which the SABC paid R43 million to Infinity Media, a company affiliated to Duduzane Zuma and the Guptas. That is not the conduct we would expect of a Minister and we want her to be held accountable," she says.

 Msibi says the police must investigate the charges so that Muthambi can stand trial.
