Johannesburg - A top lawyer linked to President Cyril Ramaphosa’s CR17 campaign has reportedly died and it is believed his death has been kept under wraps.
According to online news site, Africa News24-7, “the founder of Edelstein Farber Grobler (EFG), Barry Eugene Farber, died last week in his sleep”.
The news site also reported that EFG is the same law firm into whose Absa bank account Bosasa boss Gavin Watson is said to have deposited a R500 000 donation to Ramaphosa’s campaign.
EFG featured prominently in Public Protector Busisiwe Mkhwebane’s report following her investigations into the Bosasa donations.
This after the DA had lodged a complaint stating that Ramaphosa may have misled Parliament about his knowledge over who had funded and donated towards his campaign.
