Today, Thursday, 24 August 2017, Democratic Alliance (DA) leader, Mmusi Maimane MP, will hand over a completed legal indictment to The Hawks, supplementing the criminal charges laid against several members of the Gupta family, their associates, and the Minister of Mineral Resources, Mosebenzi Zwane, for the theft of public funds at the Estina Dairy Farm in Vrede, Free State.
The indictment consists of the necessary evidence – including relevant leaked “Gupta emails” – involving the Guptas, Cabinet Ministers, and others implicated in this scandal. This indictment provides all the evidence needed for the authorities to begin with prosecution.
This relates to the criminal charges laid last month, by DA Shadow Minister of Finance, David Maynier MP, against Mosebenzi Zwane, Atul Gupta, Ajay Gupta, Rajesh Gupta, and others, for diverting public funds allocated to the Estina Dairy Farm – a community based private-public project intended to benefit members of the Vrede community. This money was allegedly used to pay for a Gupta family wedding at Sun City in 2013.
The leader will be joined by DA Shadow Minister for Justice, Glynnis Breytenbach MP.
