The case against the two suspects linked to the theft at the president’s Phala Phala farm has been rolled over to Friday.

This is to allow one of the accused an opportunity to secure a legal representative.

Imanuwela David (39) and 30-year-old Froliana Joseph made brief appearances at the Bela Bela Magistrate Court earlier today on charges of theft and housebreaking.


The alleged theft at the President’s farm in Limpopo made headlines after former spy boss Arthur Fraser accused Cyril Ramaphosa of concealing the multi-million dollar robbery.

Prosecutor Nketheni Munyai details the charges against the duo.

Hawks spokesperson, Katlego Mogale, says the arrest of a third suspect is imminent.

Investigations into Ramaphosa’s suspected cover-up of the theft were launched, but the President was cleared of any wrongdoing by the Office of the Public Protector and the South African Reserve Bank.
