In a related matter, Briefly News also reported President Cyril Ramaphosa will not face the wrath of the law, which will work in his favour, claimed Deputy President of the Economic Freedom Fighters Floyd Shivambu and former MP Fana Mokoena. The pair believes that Ramaphosa may not be held accountable for the cover-up of the robbery at his Phala Phala farm in Limpopo in 2020. Mokoena claims the police minister and the National Prosecuting Authority will protect Ramaphosa.

The former MP said the country will hear “ridiculous stories” about why Ramaphosa cannot be charged since the NPA and police minister will avoid charging the president, TimesLIVE reported. He said the criminal complaint is a “mouse trap” that Ramaphosa will fight.
