South African President Cyril Ramaphosa’s Future Uncertain After Damning Report

HeadlineDec 02, 2022

South African President Cyril Ramaphosa is facing mounting calls to resign and could face impeachment, after an independent investigation found he may have broken anti-corruption laws. The case involves the alleged theft of millions of dollars from Ramaphosa’s private game farm, which he is accused of covering up and then stashing some of the cash in a leather sofa. Ramaphosa maintains he reported the theft and that the money found in the sofa was actually from the sale of buffaloes from his farm. South Africa’s ruling African National Congress is meeting today to discuss Ramaphosa’s fate.
