- An EFF supporter claims the VBS scandal was just an attempt to discredit the party
- She alleges that ANC was working with 'White Minority Capital' (WMC) to prevent the EFF's success in elections
- She adds that the white media pad the lies
A member of the Economic Freedom Fighters who goes by 'Mmapula' speculated that the VBS saga which exposed EFF’s involvement in corrupt activity was merely a move to destroy the party before elections.
Mmapula accused the ANC of orchestrating the whole scandal in cahoots with ‘White Business' (WMC) which use the “white media to discredit the EFF”. She adds that this is why the public does not hear anything regarding R360 million that she claims went to ANC comrades.
The fighter further asserted that claims made by the media about the EFF and Julius Malema’s involvement in the scandal would be an attempt make the lies about the EFF seem legit, Briefly.co.za found.

She claims that Malema and Floyd Shivambu would have been arrested by now if there was any evidence.
Nevertheless, Mmapula says the controversy does not harm the EFF but instead, unites them “beyond their imagination.”
In 2018, Malema and Shivambu were reportedly involved in looting VBS Mutual Bank. An investigation by Daily Maverick claimed that financial transactions for significant amounts of money were made between the bank and family members of the pair.
A report by Advocate Terry Motau showed that Shivambu’s brother, Brian, received a staggering R16 million of allegedly stolen money.
