May 28, 2017, Ronnie Mamoepa, spokesperson of South Africa’s deputy president Cyril Ramaphosa has denied the claims of South Sudanese rebels that he is taking bribes from President Kiir’s government.

The South Sudanese rebels claim Ramaphosa has been receiving the money from Kiir in order to block their leader Riek Machar from going back to the country.

The deputy president’s spokesperson told Eyewitness News that the allegations are just an attempt to tarnish Ramaphosa’s name.

Mamoepa said Ramaphosa will continue to work as a special envoy to South Sudan as assigned by President Jacob Zuma.
