Fraser's allegations centre on claims that Ramaphosa kept millions in foreign currency at his farm. After the funds were stolen, a plan was reportedly hatched to cover up the robbery because it would have exposed the large sums of money kept at the farm.
A private investigation instead of an official police investigation was pursued, it was claimed, and the culprits were reportedly traced, some of the money retrieved and they were paid for their silence.
But Ramaphosa insisted: “I’ve never stolen money from anyone, be it our taxpayers, be it from anyone, I’ve never done so. I’ve never stolen money from taxpayers, my integrity as a leader will never allow me to do so.”
