President Cyril Ramaphosa expected to resign soon following Phala Phala Farmgate scandal


President Cyril Ramaphosa is believed to be getting ready to resign.

According to reports, Ramaphosa informed his Cabinet that it would be the last time he would be meeting with them.

Pressure has been mounting on Ramaphosa to step down as president of the country and of the ANC in the fallout of the release of the report on Phala Phala. The Section 89 panel chaired by retired Chief Justice Sandile Ngcobo made serious findings against Ramaphosa.

Ramaphosa had called off his appearance before the National Council of Provinces to answer questions on Thursday at 2pm.

His deputy, David Mabuza also cancelled his appearance before the South African National Council to mark World Aids Day.

Before the release of the report by former Chief Justice Sandile Ngcobo, Ramaphosa’s office announced it had also postponed the visit by the president of Venezuela, Nicolas Maduro.

The ANC NEC meeting that had been scheduled to take place on Thursday evening has been postponed to Friday (today).
