Hawks report on how the money was transported to Phalaphala farm

The Hawks are looking into claims that the money taken from President Cyril Ramaphosa's farm, as hinted at earlier in the Presidency's media statement, did not come from the sale of game.  

In fact, one of Ramaphosa's advisers and confidantes smuggled the money into South Africa. 

It has been recently reported that the advisor, whose name is available to the public, is now the main suspect in the case being investigated by the hawks. The president's adviser is suspected of using his diplomatic patch to smuggle money from Saudi Arabia and Qatar into his private jet. 

Sources who have been part of the investigation revealed that after the money was smuggled into the country, it was packaged inside an eight-seater couch and a mattress in Johannesburg before it was transported to the President's phalaphala farm in Limpopo.  

It was reported that the domestic worker who is believed to have worked with the thieves found the money when she was trying to clean the newly arrived furniture.
