Social media users’ views on the leaked preliminary report which cleared President Cyril Ramaphosa of any wrongdoing during the Phala Phala farm robbery are split.
Gcoleka further revealed that the President did not abuse his power in utilising state resources to investigate the housebreaking
Twitter users accuse the Public Protector of protecting Ramaphosa, while some feel that former State Security Agency (SSA) boss Arthur Fraser’s decision to open a case against Ramaphosa amounts to ‘politicking’.
Here are some of the views reflected on Social Media:

How does the Acting Public Protector, Gcaleka, clear Cyril of any wrongdoing in the Phala Phala farm scandal, SARS even stated that he did not declare the money to sars. She is definitely more than incompetent, she isn’t protecting the public but her pocket!

Some say they never believed Fraser.

Public Protector Adv Kholeka Gcaleka saw through the factional politics of this crook and dismissed the entire Phala Phala farm nonsense.
Arthur Fraser & his crooks must go back to the drawing board

I never take the PhalaPhala story seriously because it was a fraud
The entire Phala Phala story was made up of the criminals like Arthur Fraser together with Zuma, Malema, and Mzwanele Manyi.
Thank you @PublicProtector.
History will remember you as the honest PP. pic.twitter.com/XQBCSybQDL
