One of the suspects, who is a Namibian citizen, reportedly fled to Namibia following the theft in 2020..

The suspect was then apparently arrested by South African authorities, some of the stolen money recovered and he was brought back to South Africa.

 Geingob told the media this week that the allegations should be tested in court.

 “As for the issue of South Africa, ever since I took office, I have been in touch with about 14 presidents. We don’t go through secretaries and so on, we just call each other. This thing happened in South Africa and there will be a court case. Maybe let’s see.

"It’s a criminal case. People who are here and came illegally were arrested, he was later charged, bailed, and went back to South Africa. So, I don’t know what favour I would’ve done anybody so let’s see, let them bring it up in court because it’s going to be in court so let’s not divert.” 

 Earlier this week, it emerged that a large amount of foreign currency was stolen from Ramaphosa’s Phala Phala game farm in Limpopo.

News of the theft emerged when former spy boss Arthur Fraser laid criminal charges against the president.
