President Cyril Ramaphosa's former Phala Phala lodge manager, who allegedly hid $580 000 under sofa cushions, now works at an exclusive Limpopo bush lodge partly owned by Arthur Fraser's niece, Nothando Moleketi-Williams.   

News24 can reveal that Dumisani Silvester Ndlovu – a central figure in the scandal which has threatened Ramaphosa's presidency – landed the job just weeks after Fraser in June 2022 revealed dramatic details of a dollar heist at the president's farm in February 2020.  

On Tuesday, Parliament will vote whether to adopt or reject a Section 89 report on Phala Phala recommending an impeachment hearing into Ramaphosa's conduct. The report said there were "substantial doubts" about Ramaphosa's explanation of the source of the money.
