The judicial commission of inquiry into state capture is expected to continue with testimony from former Free State agriculture head Peter Thabethe, related to the Estina dairy farm project in Vrede.

Gcabashe says it's unclear whether Estina also contributed
to the project.
She also wants clarity on why payments were made after the
project was cancelled
Gcabashe returns to the money that Estina received.
R60m paid after cancellation of the contract.
Total dispersed is over R280m, says Gcabashe
Writing Vrede Diary under name of transferee could not be
correct, says Zondo.
Thabethe concedes that point
Thabethe says he wouldn't know the details.
Gcabashe counters that he is the accounting officer
Gcabashe says the naming policy is misleading.
Thabethe says that the auditing was done on the financials
R34.9m, R30m amounts paid 10 days apart, says Gcabashe.
R19m is the third payment, eight days later
There's no clear indication in the feasibility study on the
source of water, says Gcabashe.
Thabethe disputes that point
The issue of milk was an issue of food security, says Thabethe.
"People who sell milk are price takers."
Zondo says you wouldn't go into a business sector that had
driven away more than 50%.
"What was you solution?" Zondo asks
In six years, the situation in the Free State was that the
number of milk producers went down by half, says Zondo.
I accept that statement, says Thabethe
Gcabashe says Thabethe accompanied the investigators to the
Vrede Dairy farm.
Thabethe can't remember.
Gcabashe directs his attention to the evidence for the visit
Zondo asks Thabethe to accept that Estina was prepared to
speak to the investigators.
Deputy Chief Justice Zondo: "Why would they National Treasury investigators would be so interested into intellectual property".
