Heavily armed South African police raided the luxury home of the Gupta family on Wednesday as part of a probe into allegations the three brothers had corrupt links with President Jacob Zuma, who has been ordered by the ruling ANC to quit as head of state.The raid, which the state broadcaster said resulted in two arrests including one Gupta family member, came amid reports Zuma was preparing to tell South Africa he was stepping down after nine years in office dogged by scandal and economic stagnation.Zuma's office said there was no "official communication" of any impending address but urged media to wait.Zuma and the Guptas -- a family of wealthy Indian-born businessmen -- deny any wrongdoing.The ANC could throw its weight behind such a vote if Zuma, who has survived several no-confidence motions in the past, refused to resign.
