Afrika Kusini: Rais Cyril Ramaphosa-Bunge Kujadili Kashfa Inayomkabili Rais Cyril Ramaphosaa
This is the scandal surrounding president Ramaphosa’s alleged cover-up of the theft of foreign currency in his private farm in 2020.
The South African Parliament is expected to hold a special session to deal with the report of a panel of legal experts who have found that President Cyril Ramaphosa may have broken his oath of office.
This is related to the farm issue scandal surrounding the president, where Mr. Ramaphosa has been accused of concealing the theft of foreign currencies in his private farm in 2020.
The BBC’s Johannesburg correspondent Nomsa Maseko reports that the fate of President Cyril Ramaphosa will be in the hands of MPs as they vote on whether to sack him.

Evidence of wrongdoing after allegations that he covered up the theft of foreign currency from his hunting lodge has prompted calls for his resignation.
However, Mr. Ramaphosa has repeatedly denied any wrongdoing.
The ruling ANC party has instructed its 230 members of parliament, including those known to be opponents of the president, to reject the report which revealed that he may have broken his oath because the results of the report are being challenged in court.
But some of them may refuse to do so and join the opposition parties for a vote of no confidence in him and allow the impeachment trial to begin.
If Mr. Ramaphosa avoids this in parliament, he is likely to be re-elected as ANC president at the party’s conference starting on Friday.
