As reported previously, a large part of this money went to funding the luxurious lifestyles of Vhavenda King Toni Mphephu Ramabulana and other executives. The R1.5 billion was municipal money invested in the bank - now it's gone.

Now, tweeps have reacted to the controversies surrounding the back and they suggested Jacob Zuma ‘loaned’ the money to pay back Nkandla from VBS.

“So, Zuma built Inkandla with our money, when he was forced to pay it back, he went to #VBS for a ‘loan’ And it turns out the VBS money is in fact still our taxes. The man used our money to pay us back. The joke is on us”, a tweep wrote.
