It seems as though the Phala Phala farm saga is still sparking wild debates on the political divide.
Many politicians in the ruling ANC have in recent days been talking about the infamous heist.
It is reported that millions of United States dollars were stolen at Phala Phala farm.
The money had been stashed in a couch and media reports suggest that the robbery was never reported or made public. Until now.
Phala Phala farm belongs to president Cyril Ramaphosa.
The latest person to talk about the infamous heist has been newly elected Gauteng ANC chairman Panyaza Lesufi.
The ever energetic Lesufi has described the Phala Phala farm saga associated with President Cyril Ramaphosa as a major setback for the ruling party.
"It’s a major setback. I think even our president knows that we were on the right course to fight corruption. We were on the right course to project our president as a person whos’ taking this country forward. We were on the right course to say our president has demonstrated that he is willing to work on behalf of this country. So, the Phala Phala farming is a major setback. It took us almost 19 steps backward," Lesufi said.
His bold statement is a reflection of what some members of the ruling party feel about the now infamous saga.
President Ramaphosa has come under so much scrutiny from opposition parties with some suggesting that he should step down in the wake of this scandal.
