The Hawks are looking for Zuma jnr. after the raid on the Gupta house in Saxonworld.
Atal Gupta was reportedly caught while trying to flee the country.
Meanwhile journalists were not allowed in Bloemfontein court where seven suspects appeared in connection of the Vrede Dairy Farm project’s charges.
Peter Thabethe, former department head of the Free State Department of Agriculture, was arrested in Bloemfontein on Wednesday and is one of the seven accused.
According to the police’s media statement, three Indian and one Chinese suspects are still being sought, but they appear to be outside the borders of the RSA.
In the meantime, Ajay Gupta has been declared fugitive after he has not arrived at court as per agreement.
Mr. VF Plus Wouter Wessels, MPV, said in response to the suspect’s appearance in court that it was extremely worrying that the state did not oppose the bail of the suspects and that they were released on bail. “These are people who landed a plane on Waterkloof Air Force Base. Nothing will stop them from landing with or without passports. ”
Mr. Wessels says the eight suspects turn out to be little fishes in this debacle. Engagement in the mess with the Peace Dairy project goes far beyond just this eight.
“There are many political leaders, such as the current prime minister and secretary general of the ANC, Ace Magashule, the former MEC of Agriculture in the Free State, Mosebenzi Zwane and virtually the entire provincial cabinet that includes all MECs.
“This political leadership of the ANC in the Free State has for years defended the project in spite of opposition and Auditor General’s (AG) admonitions and they played an active role in obstructing the committee activities of the legislature investigating initiated the project.
“We expect these eight, who were just as involved in the corrupt operations of the Peace Dairy Project together with their political supporters, to be called as accountable as soon as possible,” said Mr. Wessels.
Duduzane Zuma and Ajay Gupta are both fugitive. If someone notices them, contact the Falcons.
