GAUTENG – President Cyril Ramaphosa has said he will not be intimidated by his critics over the Phala Phala farm robbery scandal threatening to end his reign in South African politics.
The leader of African National Congress (ANC) has so far managed to remain silent on details of the theft from his Phala Phala farm which has created further controversy.
“I will not allow this to deter me, to discourage me from the work that I have to do. I will not be intimidated, nor distracted or bullied into submission.”
“I will continue to work alongside South Africans to create jobs, tackle poverty, to build safe communities and change the lives of our people and tackle the issue of electricity in our country,” said Ramaphosa.
Ramaphosa said this as he addressed the South African Communist Party Congress in Boksburg on Friday.
He however assured delegates that he was not above the law and would respect the findings of the investigation.
