- The EFF's spokesperson, Mbuyiseni Ndlozi, said the report on the VBS looting contains too much fiction
- He added that it seems the law is quick to take down black people when they have done wrong, but others are allowed to fail
Ndlozi stated that he is not "persuaded" by the VBS report
Mbuyiseni Ndlozi of the EFF has addressed the report on the looting of VBS Mutual Bank and says it's too fictional.
Ndlozi also hinted that the bank is singled out because it is black-owned.
The report, written by Terry Motau, South African Reserve Bank deputy governor Kuben Naidoo, and Werksmans Attorneys, implicated the EFF Deputy President, Floyd Shivambu, in wrongdoing.
According to a report by News24, Ndlozi outright rubbished the report.
Briefly.co.za reported earlier that Shivambu denies the allegations and says he has no dealings with the bank. He added that the South African Reserve Bank had ulterior motives in dragging the EFF into the bank's scandal.
Naidoo stated that it does not matter who you are, "if you loot a bank, we are going to come for you,".
Ndlozi said he is not persuaded by the report.
I think it makes a very difficult read for a legal document. At times there is too much fiction.
Ndlozi went on to say that the law acts swiftly on black people, where others are allowed to fail.
If black people have been found to fail, you bury them.
Ndlozi is very outspoken about this but some people may see at nothing more than him supporting his superiors.
