Pretoria - The Tshwane metro suspended eight police officers on Friday for allegedly escorting and providing unofficial security to Gupta wedding guests from Waterkloof Air Force Base to Sun City.
The officers would receive their suspension letters on Friday, said executive director Console Tleane.
“The members will have their firearms and appointment certificates confiscated,” he said.
The municipality initially found that nine officers had been involved in the escort, which formed part of the scandal dubbed “Guptagate”.
Tleane said one of those officers had not been served with a notice to suspend because he was in hospital.
