ANC President Cyril Ramaphosa has insisted at the close of the party’s Limpopo conference in Polokwane that he’s never stolen taxpayers’ money and that the money stolen from his Phala Phala farm was from a sale of animals, and a pure business transaction. He addressed claims made by former intelligence boss Arthur Fraser who has laid a criminal complaint against Ramaphosa, the Presidential Protection Unit head Major General Wally Rhoode, and members of crime intelligence for alleged money laundering, acting in contravention of the Prevention of Organised Crime Act and corruption. ANC NEC member, Lindiwe Sisulu, has praised President Cyril Ramaphosa for his utterances on being open to investigations surrounding recent allegations made by Arthur Fraser.
