JOHANNESBURG - Former Free State agriculture head of department, Peter Thabethe, continued his testimony at the state capture inquiry on Friday.
On Thursday, Thabethe told the commission that the Gupta-linked Estina Dairy Project was never given an opportunity to succeed.
He said the media should shoulder at least some of the blame for the three-year project never getting off the ground.
As HOD, he was the accounting officer at the time of the failed Gupta-linked project that was meant to empower emerging black farmers in the eastern Free State.
