Stuff magazine Publisher Toby Shapshak says the State Security Agency would have never seen this coming and cannot be blamed.

President Cyril Ramaphosa is among 14 other world leaders who have allegedly been identified in a leaked database that forms part of the Isreali spy case, Pegasus project.

Stuff magazine Publisher Toby Shapshak has described the incident as remarkable as the software is able to get into the most secure phones.

It's a software developed by an Israeli company called the NSO group that is able to snoop into people's phones, it's quite remarkable.
