Carl Niehaus Blasts Madonsela As She Defends Cyril Over PhalaPhala Scandal

Claims of corruption against Cyril Ramaphosa are unfounded, says Madonsela. Despite this, her comments are being interpreted as misleading because the public isn't saying that President Ramaphosa is corrupt, but that millions of dollars were stolen from his Phala Phala farm.

Aside from the robbers' disappearance, there are charges that Ramaphosa tortured his housekeeper and abused state resources to find them in Namibia. Arthur Fraser alleged money laundering, torture, and kidnapping in his complaint. Cyril Ramaphosa, according to him, has never been accused of corruption anywhere.

Thuli Madonsela and others have been accused of trying to divert attention away from Cyril Ramaphosa's real problems by raising the issue of whether the president is corrupt.

"It's not corruption that's been leveled against him. In order to gain an advantage for oneself, one must commit acts of corruption "Madonsela made the statement.

Thuli Madonsela's comments that she is "shameless" and must stop insulting people's intelligence prompted Carl Niehaus to fire back.

"This is making my stomach churn. Shame on you, Thuli Madonsela, for disrespecting our intelligence. If the accused had been President Jacob Zuma, she would have said the exact opposite. This kind of hypocrisy and racial profiling undermines all pretense of fairness and justice "Carl Niehaus was quoted as saying.

Some believe that Cyril Ramaphosa abused his position in order to resolve his personal problems, and that constitutes corruption.

"Even if that's the case, I'm disappointed in President Ramaphosa for abusing his position of power by breaking the law and then lying about it. Maybe there is more to this story than meets the eye. That's a form of tyranny."
