Ramaphosa ordered to pay back R12 million. Look at who made this request

The EFF said that President Cyril Ramaphosa will have to pay back R12 million if it turns out that he did use taxpayer money to pay for investigations into thefts at his Phala Phala farm. The Sunday Independent said that 16 members of the elite special task force were sent to the farm in Bela-Bela, Limpopo, at a cost of R2 million per month for six months.

Three months later, the number of members was cut in half after General Sam Setlhabane, the divisional commissioner for protection services, complained that his department was spending money on something they didn't know about. The red-berets said they would send questions to parliament about these claims, and if they were true, Ramaphosa would have to return the money.See the source image


But Sinawo Thambo, a spokesperson for the EFF, said that Ramaphosa used the R12 million in taxpayer money to search for, kidnap, question, and torture people he thought had stolen his "washed" money.

"All of this means that, in addition to Ramaphosa's money laundering and tax evasion being active theft from taxpayers, taxpayers' money and state resources were also used and stolen to recover the illegal funds. Ramaphosa's crimes of abduction, kidnapping, forced detention, and hiding a crime were done with the help of state machinery.See the source image


The questions will be sent to Bheki Cele, who is the Minister of Police, to find out if such investigations are happening. "If Ramaphosa is found guilty, he must pay back the money from taxpayers. "It is even more disturbing that the law enforcement agencies that Ramaphosa keeps asking South Africans to wait for before he can answer questions have now been proven to have been part of the cover-up," said Thambo of the EFF.Ramaphosa should ‘pay back the R12m’ on farm theft probe – EFF

A lot of political parties have come out in favor of asking a mum Ramaphosa why his farm was robbed of millions of dollars from around the world. Also, the Freedom Front Plus is the most recent group to back calls for a parliamentary committee to look into the farm theft scandal. On Monday, the DA wrote to Nosiviwe Mapisa Nqakula, who is the Speaker of the National Assembly, asking her to set up such a committee.
