"Our task in the SSA [State Security Agency] is to collect info ... and pass it through to those who are supposed to effect whatever actions they are supposed to take. But ourselves as SSA we can&39;t go around at the borders and check whether Duduzane [Zuma] has left the country or not. That responsibility is with the immigration and other officials," she said.

Authorities have declared Ajay Gupta a fugitive following his failure to appear in court for corruption linked to the Estina Dairy Farm project.
