CAPE TOWN - The Democratic Alliance (DA) has called on police to investigate the Guptas without fear or favour.

The party has opened a criminal case against Mineral Resources Minister Mosebenzi Zwane and members of the Gupta family relating to allegations that public funds were used to pay for a lavish wedding.

It follows explosive revelations that money allegedly laundered from a government-funded dairy project in the Free State was used to pay for the nuptials.

Minister Zwane was MEC for Agriculture when the project was adopted.

DA MP David Maynier laid the complaint in Cape Town on Monday.

“In my view, it’s grotesque that public funds meant to assist the poor was allegedly used to pay for a lavish family wedding.”
