Former spy boss Arthur Fraser has filed criminal charges against President Cyril Ramaphosa over the alleged theft of roughly $4 million dollars (that is more than R62 million) in cash that was apparently kept on one of his properties. The big shocker here is that Fraser claims not only was the money stolen, but that Ramaphosa knew all about it and hid it from the relevant authorities.
Fraser says he laid the charges against Ramaphosa at the Rosebank Police Station in Johannesburg.
“The details of the charges and the supporting evidence, including photographs, bank accounts, video footage and names are contained in my statement filed with the Rosebank Police Station,” he said in a statement on Wednesday, 1 June 2022..

According to Arthur Fraser, criminals colluded with President Cyril Ramaphosa’s domestic worker to get their hands on the millions, which were hidden within the premises of his farm in Phala Phala, Limpopo. Some of the charges Fraser is bringing against Ramaphosa include defeating the ends of justice and kidnapping.
“The President concealed the crime from the South African Police Service and/or South African Revenue Service (SARS) and thereafter paid the culprits for their silence. The evidence I provide shows that the said burglary took place on 9 February 2020. This conduct of the President and those involved constitutes a breach of, inter alia, the Prevention of Organized Crime Act, No. 121 of 1998 (“POCA”) and the Prevention of Corruption Activities Act No. 12 of 2004,” Fraser said.
Fraser added that he hopes the relevant authorities will investigate the case against Ramaphosa without fear or favour.
“I also trust that the President will take the nation into his confidence and accept or deny that the events I described in my affidavit occurred on his property,” he said.
