Julius malema said something about Cyril Ramaphosa that leave SA people speechless


What Julius Malema Said About Cyril Ramaphosa Phalaphala Farm Gate


In his media briefing Tuesday, Julius Malema, the leader of the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF), said: "We are going to deal with President Ramaphosa as we dealt with former president Zuma.


At a press conference, party leader Julius Malema released the video of the looting, as well as a slide show showing the suspects, and said if President Cyril Ramaphosa refused to resign and allow for an open and transparent investigation, the EFF would not recognise him as President.


The president is not paying taxes as he is using his own hard money, said party leader Julius Malema.    Show Source Texts

The statement came after Arthur Fraser, a former head of the state security agency, opened criminal proceedings against the President -- claiming President Cyril Ramaphosas cover-up a crime that saw millions stolen from his farms.


Former State Security Agency chief Arthur Fraser went to the Johannesburg Police Station on 1 June and opened a criminal case against South African President Cyril Ramaphosa for stealing what Fraser said was over $4m cash hidden at his game farm.


South African President Cyril Ramaphosa has admitted the theft really happened on his ranch, Phala Phala, in northern Limpopo province, but said that the incident was reported to Ramaphosas Presidential Protection Unit chief.


Amabhunganes reporting of a theft on President Cyril Ramaphosas Phala Phala farm relied on information in the deposed affidavit by Arthur Fraser to open a case, interviews with several of those involved, and there was no release, say, by the manager of the ranch, by Cyril Ramaphosas Presidential Protection Unit, the Presidential Protection Unit, or the National Security Agency.    Show Source Texts


Sources close to South African President Cyril Ramaphosa said while there was indeed a theft on Ramaphosas farm, the amount of money involved was lower than Fraser claimed, and that the money was all legitimately obtained after Ankole cows were sold.


Arthur Fraser accused President Ramaphosa of abduction, corruption, money laundering, and concealing crime over an alleged $4m theft at his game farm, in a 12 page affidavit, which was accompanied by photographs, documents, and closed-circuit TV (CCTV) video of the alleged theft taking place.


Former spy chief Arthur Fraser further claimed the subsequent actions by Ramaphosas Presidential Head of Security, Wally Rhoode--to trace the thief--amounting to criminal collusion in hiding the Presidents role in multiple crimes.    Show Source Texts


United Democratic Movement leader Bantu Kholimosa wrote to the parliamentary speaker on 7 June 2022, calling for Parliament to conduct an inquiry into allegations of money-laundering using a group of retired judges, and for South African president Cyril Ramaphosa to resign from office in the process, allowing Vice-President David Mabuza to take over.    Show Source Texts
