The questions around the robbery at President Cyril Ramaphosa’s Phala Phala game farm are piling up.

TimesLive investigative journalist Aron Hyman investigated the backgrounds of the men alleged to have robbed the farm, only to be intimidated, tortured and bribed to not speak about the theft.

One of the men, Erkki Shikongo, admits to being a criminal but denies involvement in the theft from Ramaphosa’s farm.

Co-accused Urbanus Shaumbwako is facing charges for fleeing a roadblock and then being caught with firearms registered to Namibian police.

The first case cropped up in 2020, as an illegal border crossing by Imanuwela David, one of five men named by Arthur Fraser as being part of the raid on Phala Phala.

The other four were Erkki Shikongo, Urbanus Shaumbwako, Petrus Muhekeni and Petrus Afrikaner.
