Cape Town – A preliminary probe was done into the unauthorised landing of a Gupta charted aircraft at the Waterkloof Air Force Base, but a full investigation is under way by the directors general of the affected departments, the government said on Friday.

The committee of DGs would have seven days to report back to the Cabinet ministers.

Briefing the media from Pretoria, ministers from the justice, crime prevention, and security cluster saidA total of five senior government officials and military personnel have been suspended following the unauthorised landing.

Government insisted the landing was not cleared by the proper authorities.

Police and metro police officers in the security escort had since been arrested, Justice Minister Jeff Radebe said.
