Hawks deny investigating President Ramaphosa


05 February 2021

The Hawks have confirmed that they are not investigating President Cyril Ramaphosa  for fraud, theft and contravention of the Public Finance Management Act.

Yesterday the M&G newspaper claimed that the Hawks are probing the case, however, the Presidency also denied this.

The Hawks said former Eskom boss Brian Molefe approached Limpopo police in January to lodge a complaint against Ramaphosa.

But the Hawks told Molefe that the matter formed part of his testimony at the state capture commission therefore it would have to be handled by investigators at the inquiry.

Hawks spokesperson Katlego Mogale said: The statement is incorrect as Brian Molefe’s testimony, which he hasn’t concluded, hasn’t yet been made public.”
