"We would even delete his name as the former president of SA. We will just say from 2018-2022 there was a vacancy, there was no president," said Shivambu.

Ramaphosa is currently facing scrutiny over allegations that he tried to conceal the theft of $4 million (roughly R62 million) on his Limpopo game reserve in 2020. The president is said to have gone to extreme lengths to retrieve the money by bribing, kidnapping and abusing state resources, according to News24.
