Ramaphosa is married to Patrice Motsepe’s sister Tshepo Motsepe. The case is one of two opened against President Cyril Ramaphosa in KwaZuluNatal.

Srinivasen Naidoo claimed that he became aware of the cattle auction at Ramaphosa’s farm on 5 March when Motsepe paid R4.4 million for four Ankole cows.

Naidoo claimed that the sale was suspicious and it was not for cattle but for favours since Motsepe is a businessman involved in mining and energy.


There are suspicions that the sale of cattle is being used to pay bribes for favourable government contracts and easing of regulation in the mining and energy amongst other sectors in which Motsepe is involved.

Naidoo wants authorities to check financial records between Motsepe and Ramaphosa’s family.
