Former MEC for Agriculture in the Free State, Mosebenzi Zwane, appeared alongside his co-accused, where they face fraud, corruption and money laundering charges linked to the botched R280 million project.

Several former Free State officials, including Peter Thabethe and Seiphati Dhlamini, were present in the dock with Zwane on Wednesday morning.

They face an additional charge for contravening the Public Finance Management Act.

Judge Johann Daffue said that the matter would return for a second pre-trial hearing.
