corruption at VBS Mutual Bank
Callers continue to share their thoughts on the VBS Bank Heist with host Sizwe Mpofu- Walsh.

Senior ANC officials, along with members of the EFF are among those being fingered in the scandal relating to more than R1 billion being syphoned out of VBS Mutual Bank.

Callers on the Eusebius McKaiser Show, with Sizwe Mpofu-Walsh as the stand-in, continue to share their views on VBS Mutual Bank.

Nathi, a caller says he is not disputing the wrong that happened.

But the only issue that I have is that it seems like the media is pushing an agenda when it comes to black entrepreneurs and black executives.

Nathi, caller

A point in case to note is the Steinhof issue. If we had to compare R2 billion and R400 billion, surely someone needs to be held accountable at Steinhof.

Nathi, caller

Thami, another caller says the VBS narrative is very popular on Twitter and believes there is an overemphasis on the issue.

This is an inditement on black entrepreneurs like there is some sort of big agenda and conspiracy by the media to discredit black people altogether.

Thami, caller

I really don't like that narrative because I think it is hogwash because, for a number of reasons, I don't think it is been used to manage our outrage against VBS.

Thami, caller
