The Gauteng High Court in Pretoria has ruled that Public Protector Busisiwe Mkhwebane failed in her duties to investigate and report on the Vrede dairy project in the Free State.

The #GuptaLeaks revealed in 2018 how at least R30 million paid to the Guptas via the farm ended up funding the family's lavish Sun City wedding in 2013.
