Ramaphosa faces impeachment after damning independent panel report

President Cyril Ramaphosa faces impeachment after preliminary evidence proved he broke his oath of office as discovered by an independent panel formed by the speaker of the South African parliament.

PRETORIA – President Cyril Ramaphosa faces impeachment after preliminary evidence proved he broke his oath of office as discovered by an independent panel formed by the speaker of the South African parliament.

After reviewing the report, which was filed on Wednesday, the parliament will determine whether to move through with the impeachment process the following week.

This occurs just a few weeks before a party election conference that will determine if Ramaphosa is allowed to compete for re-election in 2024 as a candidate for the ruling African National Congress (ANC).

He has not been charged with any crimes in regards to the controversial Phala Phala farm scandal and has instantly denied any misconduct.

In a statement released by the South African presidency on Wednesday, Ramaphosa stated, “I categorically deny that I have violated this oath in any way, and I similarly deny that I am guilty of any of the allegations made against me.”

The theft of an estimated $4 million in cash from Ramaphosa’s game farm in 2020 came to light in June, prompting inquiries about how the wealthy president acquired the money and if he disclosed it.

Ironically, he was elected on a platform of combating corruption following the ouster of Jacob Zuma.

He delayed answering questions in front of parliament on Thursday in order to give himself more time to think over the panel’s findings, which had “implications for the stability of the country,” according to a statement from parliament.
