The United Democratic Movement (UDM) has called on President Cyril Ramaphosa to step aside and temporarily vacate his office to allow for a proper investigation into the alleged theft of millions of US dollars from his Limpopo game farm.
UDM leader Bantu Holomisa says his party has asked Parliament to set up a panel of retired judges to investigate the theft which reportedly took place in February of 2020.
Holomisa spoke to eNCA and says it is especially worrying that the SAPS and State Security services have also been implicated in the matter.
Ramaphosa, speaking at an ANC gathering over the weekend, assured party members that the stolen cash was not from the proceeds of crime.
Ramaphosa says he will work with law enforcement agencies to allow for a proper investigation.

- Several audits launched to recover funds stolen from State coffers during the Covid-19 pandemic.
- Government committed to working with mining industry to make the sector a more people-friendly job provider.
President Ramaphosa's stolen millions: Parliament must appoint 2 or 3 retired Con Court judges to do preliminary investigation, whilst the President goes on short sabbatical. Hand over results to NPA.

Arthur Fraser drops a bombshell! One wishes we practiced more doing of justice than giving ultimatums and warnings!
Let’s support justice and knowledge of the truth!
