APA-Cape Town (South Africa)

President Cyril Ramaphosa on Sunday submitted to parliament a report required by an independent panel assessing his conduct following a robbery at his Phala Phala game farm two years ago.

The panel, headed by former Chief Justice Sandile Ngcobo, with other members of the panel being judge Thokozile Masipa and lawyer Mahlape Sello, is looking into the events surrounding the crime committed at his Limpopo province farm in February 2020. 

“The president’s submission affirms his commitment and cooperation with the due process,” the presidency said.

It said Ramaphosa was committed to the rule of law and reiterated his position that he “committed no wrongdoing.”

“President Ramaphosa has always made certain that throughout his tenure as president, he abides by his oath of office and set an example in his respect for the Constitution, its institutions, due process and the rule of law,” the office said.
