JOHANNESBURG – Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) leader Julius Malema has called for the impeachment of President Cyril Ramaphosa for his alleged involvement in the Phala Phala Farm saga.
Malema made the remarks at a press conference at the EFF headquarters in Marshalltown, Johannesburg on Thursday.
“We are confident that the ANC people will themselves accept that the motion of no confidence must be put on the President if he does not step down,” said Malema.
The EFF has called on the president to account for millions of dollars that do not appear to have been reported to authorities.

Ramaphosa reportedly covered up a burglary that took place at his Limpopo farm in 2020.
South African state security agency former chief Arthur Fraser launched a criminal case against President Ramaphosa last month for an alleged cover-up.
In a scathing press conference, Malema reiterated the party’s call for Ramaphosa to step down as the country’s president.
“We are not asking for something that was not done before, it was done before. We want to go to Phala Phala, we can not hold the President accountable properly if we do not know how the bed looks like.”
