South African billionaire businessman, Tokyo Sexwale, this afternoon held a surprise press conference in support of his allegations that billions of dollars have been stolen at the South Africa Reserve Bank.
Sexwale said the stolen money was deposited in an account at the central bank and was transferred into 18 commercial banks, including HSBC Singapore.
Sexwale said SA President, Cyril Ramaphosa, Central Bank governor, Lesetja Kganyago, and finance minister, Tito Mboweni, have been avoiding meeting him for over 2 years.
Sexwale said he eventually met Ramaphosa over the matter after the intervention of six ANC veterans, but nothing came out of the meeting.
Sexwale said at the beginning of the COVID pandemic, the anonymous owner of the fund offered R75 Billion, if the money was released, but Sexwale, who has the mandate to act for the owner, said he did not receive any response from treasury and from the Reserve Bank.
Sexwale said there are now attempts to move the money back into South Africa as investments, as a form of money laundering.
He said a police case has been opened with the Hawks and asked journalists to go and dig deeper into the case.
Sexwale refused to give the case number and the exact amount that was stolen.
During the press conference, a shareholder at the Reserve Bank came forward and confirmed that the allegations are true and the account exists.
