Estina Dairy Farm 3

For years, the Estina Dairy farm project, which was intended for the benefit of local Free State farmers, has been at the centre of state capture.  Now as investigations into the controversial project continue, the Hawks have made eight major arrests and seized property from some of the accused.  South Africa’s elite crime fighting unit insists that there are still more suspects to apprehend. Carte Blanche asks: Is the net finally closing in on the Gupta empire?

uMhlathuze Water Board

Their mission is to provide sustainable and affordable water and improve the quality of life of people living in rural areas across KZN.  But according to reports, the uMhlathuze Water Board has been spending its money on five-star hotels, business class flights and royal patronage. Despite qualified audits, audit reports and allegations of years of mismanagement, the splurging continued unabated.
