PRETORIA - A project that was meant to assist 100 black farmers was instead used to push the Gupta agenda according to Chief Justice Raymond Zondo.
He wants former Free State premier Ace Magashule, Mosebenzi Zwane, and Tony Gupta to be investigated over their involvement in the Vrede dairy farm project.
Zondo recommends that Magashule and Zwane be sued to recover the money lost due to their alleged assistance in the project. The last chapter of the State Capture Commission report slammed the pair for their failure in connection with the Free State’s R1 billion housing project saga. According to News24, houses were promised to the poor but never delivered.

Zondo said it is necessary that there be consequences for people who fail to do their job. He said if nothing is done, corruption and other acts of state capture will continue forever to the detriment of the country and all people. Zondo added those who probed the failed project have been targeted by those who deemed it their duty to cover up and protect those responsible.
