PHALA PHALA SCANDAL Despite Arthur Fraser’s evidence labeled as ‘hearsay’, the spymaster checkmated Ramaphosa By FERIAL HAFFAJEE. Judge Sandile Ngcobo says the spy boss’s evidence is “hearsay,” but still makes a devastating discovery. President Ramaphosa denies Phala Phala’s alleged video evidence. “It’s not my farm,” he says.

The Constitution acted inconsistently with his office and exposed him to a conflict of interest by continuing his hunting and farming business. The explosion has now rocked the country.

It does not mean that you should blindly accept any information contained in the statement in the hope that it may or will likely be verified.
