"There is a video which will leak. If he is talking too much it will be released. They were inside a plane counting hard cash in dollars. That is gangsterism counting. How do we have a president who counts money like he is in a taxi rank,” said Malema.

Malema went on to say that the EFF is the only party that can stop Ramaphosa and that the party has now declared war on him. The EFF leader told supporters that the president does not pay taxes because he uses hard cash. Malema added that the money Ramaphosa was supposed to pay taxes on could have been used to build schools and houses for the population.

Ramaphosa is currently accused of money laundering and possible tax evasion after more than R62 million in US dollars was stolen from his Phala Phala farm in Limpopo in February 2020. There have been many questions about why the president had so much cash on his property and if he paid SARS tax on the proceeds from the sale of game on the farm, according to News24.

Briefly News previously reported that 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 alleged cover-up of the robbery at his Phala Phala farm in Limpopo in 2020. Mokoena claimed that the police minister and the National Prosecuting Authority will protect Ramaphosa.

The former MP said the country will hear “ridiculous stories” about why Ramaphosa can not 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.
