A tailings dam at Jagersfontein burst over the weekend.

Tony Gupta offered a former Free State MEC a R2 million bribe derived from the Jagersfontein mine in 2012 – a source of funds that allegedly also lined the pockets of then-Free State premier Ace Magashule and former president Jacob Zuma’s son Duduzane, according to testimony at the Judicial Commission of Inquiry into State Capture.

On Sunday, Jagersfontein made headlines when a tailing dam burst, killing at least one person and injuring countless others. The cause of the disaster is being probed by government.

Three years ago, Mxolisi Dukwana, the former MEC for economic development, tourism and environmental affairs in the Free State, said he was offered R2 million a month by Tony Gupta, funds which allegedly stemmed from the Jagersfontein mine.
