17 April, 03:29 PM

ANC secretary general Ace Magashule and former Cabinet minister Mosebenzi Zwane will face a fresh probe into their roles in the Estina dairy farm matter, Public Protector Busisiwe Mkhwebane announced on Tuesday.

Mkhwebane told MPs that her office would open a new case file to probe the role of politicians and individuals. After the meeting, she told journalists that Magashule as Free State Premier and Zwane as former Free State agriculture MEC would be looked at specifically.

However, she added that she could not probe the Gupta family because they were private citizens.

"I don't have jurisdiction over private individuals, but we will have to investigate public officials and whether they are implicated or not," she explained.

Mkhwebane added that she decided to open a new case file after the justice portfolio committee urged her to do so.
