Reliable sources have told SABC News that ANC Secretary-General, Ace Magashule has been issued with a warrant of arrest over his alleged involvement in the Vrede Dairy Farm Project.

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.
