According to multiple reports, many political parties have put Nene under pressure over his testimony at the commission of inquiry into state capture, where he admitted that he attended a number of meetings with the controversial Gupta family at their Saxonworld home and businesses in Midrand.

As the news broke, South Africans took to Twitter under the #Nene to express their concerns but emotions towards the news were mixed. Some people said that they would be happy if Nene left because they did not trust him and believe that he should have come clean sooner. However, others do sympathise with him as well.
