Ramaphosa says, "The public must use less electricity to stop load shedding." Should we start by turning out the lights at Phala Phala? President Ramaphosa has asked everyone to use less energy to stop load shedding. We thought that load shedding was a problem that the government should solve.
Section 194(3) of the Constitution specifies that the president has the authority to suspend the public protector, auditor general, or any other member of a Chapter 9 institution (a). "The President may suspend a person from office at any time following the commencement of a National Assembly committee's procedures for that person's removal."
When the Economic Freedom Fighters carried a sofa covered in fake money to the Public Protector's office to protest President Cyril Ramaphosa's Phala Phala controversy, they had onlookers in stitches. President Cyril Ramaphosa's Phala Phala farm had thousands of dollars taken from it, and it was later discovered that the money had been stashed in the president's furnishings.
The Constitutional Court has been informed by President Cyril Ramaphosa's attorneys that there is "no evidence" to support the High Court's judgment that he suspended Public Protector Busisiwe Mkhwebane because she was looking into him in connection with the Phala Phala break-in. Assistant State Attorney Mark Owen said in court filings that "on the contrary, the process giving rise to advocate Mkhwebane's suspension had began on 18 March 2022, months before the events of 7 June 2022 [when Mkhwebane sent Ramaphosa 31 questions concerning the break-in]".
The parliamentary intelligence agency JSCI has exonerated Deputy State Security Minister Zizi Kodwa of any responsibility for "covering up" the Phala Phala heist.

Cyril Ramaphosa's chances of remaining in office as party president are dim, since the ANC is expected to have its national conference in December and the president has been nominated by a number of provinces to be removed from office. As much as Ramaphosa may attempt to make it seem like there is nothing to this tale and he is innocent, and if in fact he is innocent in all this, he has a funny way of expressing it, we all know that a dark cloud is hanging over him because of the Phala Phala saga.
President Cyril Ramaphosa is intending to contest for a second term as the ANC leader at the upcoming December elective conference despite clear signs of his failed leadership during his current term. Although some people are not in favour of this as they believe he has nothing to offer, the key question becomes who else can step in due to the leadership crisis within the ruling party.

Yet another perspective with regards to the Phala Phala matter. I have, over the weeks gone by, been struggling to understand the role, duties and responsibilities of the office of the Public Protector, and it seems to me that many of us don't understand why we do have a Public Protector in the first place my understanding of the office of the Public Protector is to protect the public against corruption, malfeasance, mismanagement and abuse of state power and responsibilities by public representatives and servants.
