A new report suggests that R4 million was looted from VBS Bank to pay for an EFF party. Both Julius Malema and Floyd Shivambu hit back at journalists on social media over the claims. Briefly.co.za readers had a lot to say about the allegations.
Facebook user Charles Petja thinks that it is a diversion tactic by Pravin Gordhan who is also currently under scrutiny by the Public Protector.
"New report??? Naah! Recycled lies to divert attention from their mini Jesus Pravin"
While Mandisi Bani said:
"Lol they were busy throwing parties, did they forget about the poor they're claiming to fight for, that's a good example of a leader, throwing parties and forget the poor.I guess the poor will eat empty promises and lies, especially from someone who calls himself the perfect leader and a freedom fighter"
Masize Mathe said:
"Pay back the money now the finger is pointing to you"
Nathi Mhlongo said:
"Finally the truth will come out about the out VBS money scandal. I wish those who are responsible be held accountable for their wrong doings"
