President Cyril Ramaphosa says he cannot comment any further on the 2020 robbery at his Limpopo farm, due to the possible investigation by the South African Police Service (SAPS).
The presidency released a statement, while the story about the farm robbery remains headline news across the country, the President is focusing on rebuilding the econony.
Former head of the State Security Agency, Arthur Fraser, opened a criminal case at the Rosebank Police Station against Ramaphosa, accusing him of money laundering.
According to Fraser, some $4 million were stolen from the President's farm in February 2020 and Ramaphosa is also accused of having organised the kidnapping of the suspects, concealing the crime and bribing the suspects to keep them silent.
Spokesperson in the Presidency, Vincent Magwenya, has since confirmed that such a robbery did take place, but denied the amount and said the money that was stolen was the proceeds of selling wildlife.
In a new statement released over the week end, Magwenya says the president acknowledges the public interest in the story and the concern about the claims made against him.
However, Magwenya says President Ramaphosa chooses to rather focus on getting the country back on track.
