The narrative of the Phala Phala farm seems to still be sparking passionate discussions on both sides of the political line.
A number of high-ranking ANC politicians have brought up the historic heist in recent days.
It is reported that millions of United States dollars were stolen at Phala Phala farm.
0Supposedly, the loot was concealed in a couch, and no one ever reported it stolen. Until now.
It is President Cyril Ramaphosa's understanding that he owns the Phala Phala farm.
Panyaza Lesufi, the freshly elected chairperson of the ANC in Gauteng, is the most recent official to mention the infamous theft.
Lesufi, a man of unlimited energy, has branded the Phala Phala farm issue involving President Cyril Ramaphosa a significant defeat for the ruling party.
"It’s a terrible setback. Our president, I believe, feels that we were headed in the right track when we cracked down on corruption. We were on the right track to project our president as a person whos’ moving our country ahead. We were on the correct route to say our president has demonstrated that he is willing to work on behalf of this country. There has been a major setback because of the farming of Phala Phalas. We withdrew approximately 19 paces "It was Lesufi who made the remark.
His forthright stance is a reflection of what several members of the ruling party feel about the now legendary affair.
Many in the opposition have demanded that President Ramaphosa resign in the wake of the scandal that has rocked his administration.
