Magashule was the premier of the Free State when money meant to empower emerging farmers was allegedly misused.
This is the latest in a series of arrests made by the Hawks in recent times.
Others arrested in the Free State recently include Edwin Sodi and his co-accused, who stand accused of corruption in the multi-million rand asbestos project in the province.

Meanwhile, the ANC Youth League in the province says the arrests are a well orchestrated usage of state organs to fight internal faction battles.
