The National Prosecuting Authority’s Asset Forfeiture Unit has obtained a preservation order to seize R220-million that the court determined is proceeds of crime.

Radebe says that at the time, in presenting the project to council, the then Free State Agriculture MEC Mosebenze Zwane -- now Mineral Resources Minister -- guaranteed R400-million to the project.

But, that wasn’t all.
