President Cyril Ramaphosa must step aside while the allegations of money laundering at his Limpopo farm are tested.
This is the call from the Economic Freedom Fighters as they question why the president did not alert parliament, nor the police about the robbery at his Phala Phala farm in February 2020.
Information of this incident came to light after former state security boss, Arthur Fraser, lodged a criminal complaint against the president for failing to report the alleged robbery of $4 million in cash from his farm.
While the president claimed that the matter had been reported to a member of his security detail, it was not taken further.
But a shroud hangs over President Ramaphosa’s actions and why there was so much foreign currency on the premises, and whether it had not been declared to the South African Revenue Service.
EFF leader, Julius Malema has meanwhile called out the so-called Ramaphosa supporters within the religious sector.
Malema says that the likes of Archbishop Thabo Makgoba and Frank Chikane had praised the president for his stance in fighting corruption.
He has however questioned their silence as the head of state is implicated in trying to side-step the law.
