JOHANNESBURG - One of the intended beneficiaries of the Gupta-linked Estina Dairy Project says President Jacob Zuma was among the people who told her organisation they'd benefit from the farm.

She says she's so far been a beneficiary only in name.

"I joined the project back in 2013 and was taken to Pretoria to St George's Hotel, where we met President Jacob Zuma, who told us we'd benefit from the project... We are just beneficiaries," she says.

On Saturday the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) said it has seized the Gupta-linked Estina diary farm in Vrede in the Free State in a bid to recoup up to R1.6-billion in looted funds.

It also said Atul Gupta's personal bank account will be frozen. 

The NPA alleges that he had received proceeds of crime in cash.
