The ball is still rolling to arrest two more suspects who are wanted abroad in connection with the theft of thousands of dollars on pres. Cyril Ramaphosa’s Phala Phala Game Farm.

The magistrate’s court in Bela-Bela, Limpopo, heard on Friday, during the brief appearance of a former cleaner, her brother and their co-accused, that the extradition process is still ongoing.

Froliana Joseph (31) and her brother, Ndilinasho David Joseph (27) appeared together with Imanuwela David (39).

Mashudu Malabi-Dzhangi, spokesperson for the National Prosecuting Authority in Limpopo, confirmed on Friday that a further delay has been given in the case to complete the extradition of two suspects in Namibia.

“The state has asked for further adjournment to complete the investigation, which includes mobile phone records and video footage,” says Malabi-Dzhangi.

The state claims that all three accused broke into the president’s game farm in February 2020 and stole around $580,000 which was hidden in a couch in a residence. They are facing charges of burglary and theft.

According to the state, they allegedly broke into another farm together with other suspects on 8 February 2020, but did not steal anything because it was the wrong farm. It is only the day after that they apparently broke into the president’s farm.

Froliana apparently previously worked as a cleaner on the president’s farm.
