Guptagate latest: Police Minister speaks

Johannesburg - The Minister of Police Nathi Mthethwa says his department will conduct an investigation of their own regarding the furore over the Guptas party plane landing at a military base in Pretoria.

He said in a statement today that he would be investigating possible moonlighting SAPS officers, who were seen escourting guests to Vega Gupta’s wedding at Sun City.

Mthethwa said he would also delve into alleged bogus state vehicles used to transport guests from the Waterkloof Air Force Base to the wedding venue and the abuse of the police blue light system in private vehicles. He said information had come about pointing to moonlighting police officers who were allegedly hired as private security guards for the event.

“In light of these above-mentioned allegations, I have now instructed the General Phiyega to launch an investigation to determine if any SAPS prescripts were violated.  I have further instructed that in the event that such transgressions occurred, that the law must take its course on any person found to be responsible.”

Mthethwa said he was expecting a preliminary report by the end of business, today.
