“The Ministry of Justice says it is in possession of a receipt from the courier company, DHL, which confirms that a request for assistance in the investigation of the Phala Phala robbery was sent to their counterparts in South Africa. This was said by the ministry’s spokesperson, Simon Idipo, on Wednesday” (The Namibian, 24.06.2022).
The President of South Africa, Cyril Ramaphosa is under public scrutiny over the alleged criminal conspiracy at this Phala Phala Farm, which is implicating huge sums of money and fraud. That is coming home to roost. Yes, in South Africa Ramaphosa can sway the authorities or block any sort of investigation.
The Namibian authorities is looking into it. As the leaks and the possible breaches of law there is putting things into question. We know that the evidence and stories of Arthur Fraser will put gasoline on the fire. That in combination of the stories from Namibia.
What is striking is that the drips of knowledge from Namibia is destroying any sort of silencing the critics or the investigation in South Africa. Where the President has suspended the Public Protector over it and where the Parliament is pending a start of inquiry into it. Therefore, things are moving along. Slowly, but the President isn’t looking in any sort of bright light.
The President can hope that the limelight comes on his predecessor Zuma and his business-dealings with the Gupta’s. However, the current and day-to-day operations cannot go as normal. When the Hawks and others should look into Ramaphosa. He shouldn’t get away with this… just because his the President and in the manner of which he stopped the CR17 Report.
That’s why you know this man wants to stop the investigation in Namibia. It is hurting him and proving more of the credible criminal conspiracy and a way of laundering money from South Africa. You don’t move money like this and make it seems like a criminal conspiracy, but there is nothing happening in South Africa. Until, a former intelligence officer drops knowledge and tells what went down.
This dance Ramaphosa cannot get away from. Sooner or later the “head-shot” or the “final-straw” is published. The scandal of kidnapping, money laundering and such will not be left behind that easily. No, this will be challenged like the days the opposition went after the Gupta’s scandals of Eskom and everywhere else they were eating of the government plate. Therefore, the same can easily happen here.
This time around the people should seek answers and not let it go. They let bygones be bygones over the secret campaign funds. Now they need to know why everything happened and how it went down. As we know the President is involved in the trading and operations of the Phala Phala farm. That is well-known now as he was part of the sale of Ankole Cattle. Therefore, we know his earning and following it up.
That’s why we know he knew what went down and the reasons for the transfer of money. Which is now investigated on both sides of the border. Namibian authorities will not be taken hostage or blocked directly by Ramaphosa. That will only happen if they relent or the neighbours are able to silence it there. Because, this is becoming ugly and who knows.
We just have to wait for more intelligence and certainly it is much harder to hide. When you have played outside your own dominion. Now, he has to answer for the acts, which is involving the Namibian authorities. That cannot be easy… as well… as the open questions unanswered to the Public Protector. Peace.
