Update: A recent robbery at President Cyril Ramaphosa’s game farm in Limpopo was not made public because it occurred on private property, not a national key point, the Presidency said on Friday.

The presidential spokesperson, Vincent Magwenya, disputed the 4 million US dollars reported by Arthur Frazer, the former state security agency director-general , who opened a criminal case accusing Ramphosa for allegedly concealing a crime, according to SABC.

“We cannot give the number now because the robbery happened two years ago. We would have to go through records to figure out the amount,” said Mangwenya.

According to the presidency the robbery occurred at the President Ramaphosa’s Phala Phala game farm in Bela Bela, around February 9, 2020.

He said the President was attending an African Union Summit in Addis Ababa at the time the incident occurred.

“Upon being advised of the robbery, President Ramaphosa reported it to the head of the Presidential Protection Unit of the South African Police Service for investigation.”

Mangwenya said Fraser’s claims are unfounded because he has not supplied proof of criminal activity

“President Ramaphosa is willing to cooperate with any law enforcement investigation of these matters,” he said.

In an unprecedented move, Frazer said has laid charges against His Excellency, the President of the Republic of South Africa, Matamela Cyril Ramaphosa.

“The charges and corresponding evidence, which includes photographs, bank accounts, video footage and names, are found in my statement filed with the Rosebank Police Station,” he said.

According to Frazer, the charges originate from the theft of millions of dollars, stashed at the President’s Phala Phala farm in Waterberg, Limpopo, by criminals in collusion with his domestic worker.

He said the crime included defeating the ends of justice, kidnapping of suspects, their interrogation on his property and bribery, adding that President concealed the crime from South Africans.
