Ramaphosa’s office aware of phishing emails, not hacking
Last month, Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa claimed intelligence resources were being used to hack his emails.
JOHANNESBURG - The deputy president’s office has confirmed that while its unaware of incidents of hacking on Cyril Ramaphosa’s emails, it does know of phishing emails that have been sent to people using his name.
Last month, Ramaphosa claimed intelligence resources were being used to hack his emails.
That’s when the Sunday Independent reported on his leaked emails claiming he had had extramarital affairs with several women.
Ramaphosa’s spokesperson Tyrone Seale said: “The office of the deputy president is not aware of any incidents of hacking. We are, however, aware of various phishing emails that have been sent to various people and these emails abuse the name of the deputy president.”
