The suspects returned to the Bela Bela Magistrate’s Court in Limpopo on Tuesday.

NPA Limpopo spokesperson Mashudu Malabi-Dzhangi said the case will now be transferred to Modimolle regional court.

In February 2020, cash in foreign currency was stolen from President Cyril Ramaphosa’s game farm.

"Imanuwela David will remain in custody, and the bail of the other two accused has been extended,” said Malabi-Dzhangi.

Siblings Floriana and Ndilinasho Joseph face charges of housebreaking and theft. At the time of the theft, Floriana was a domestic worker on the farm.

The alleged mastermind, Imanuwela David, was denied bail in December after the court found him a flight risk.

David faces two counts of housebreaking, one count of conspiracy to commit housebreaking and money laundering.
