The Gupta family is not having a happy Valentine’s Day, and the Hawks swooped on their Saxonwold home in the early hours of Wednesday morning.
The family has long been linked to accusations of state capture, with their close ties to President Jacob Zuma drawing attention.
The response on Twitter to the family’s less than lovely day was swift and brutal. Here are some of the funniest tweets.
