Pressure is mounting on South Africa President Cyril Ramaphosa to resign or face impeachment over a burglary that he is accused of concealing at his farm. The ruling African National Congress party commonly known as ANC was due to convene emergency talks on this week. According to independent panel set up by parliament concluded on Wednesday that Ramaphosa could have committed some serious violations of the constitution and anti-corruption laws.
According to the report from the committee, there was enough evidence to warrant a parliamentary debate on whether president Cyril Ramaphosa should be removed from office. This is a big blow to the incumbent President Ramaphosa as he seeks to be re-elected head of the African National Congress party nominations in less than two weeks. President Cyril Ramaphosa could end up being the third ANC leader forced out since the party came to power after the end of apartheid in 1994. The president took office at the helm of Africa's biggest economy in 2018 on a promise to root out corruption.
