Protesters target well-known journalist after anti-Gupta articles

A group of protesters gathered outside the home of well-known journalist Peter Bruce on Thursday.

“I have not been home yet. Apparently there are people in black T-shirts demonstrating outside my house. They are banging my garage doors and threatening people. I am at the Parkview police station as we speak to report the matter‚” Bruce said.

Bruce said he has no doubt that the protest could be linked to an opinion piece in Business Day in which he writes that he was targeted by the Guptas for writing critical articles about them.

Bruce is editor at large of the Tiso Blackstar Group‚ formerly Tiso Black Star Group.
