EFF: 'Where there is criminality, there must be accountability'
EFF leader Julius Malema says that his party has full confidence in his deputy Floyd Shivambu, saying that his explanation that he is not involved in the looting of the VBS Mutual Bank was sufficient, however added, where there is criminality involved there must be held accountability.
The party held a briefing to address reports that Shivambu’s brother Brian received over R16 million in gratuitous payments from VBS, R10 million of which the Daily Maverick reported flowed to Floyd Shivambu’s account.
To analyse the EFF presser, Xolani Gwala speaks to public policy specialist and lecturer at North West University Kagiso Pooe who says if you look at the report by the advocate these are his findings.
And he says it would actually be more advisable if Treasury could actually take these findings forward in a more legal process.Kagiso Pooe, Public policy specialist and lecturer at North West University
So now whether we believe Mr Malema is dodging or being non-categorical, the key issue that needs to be in mind is, until this goes through a proper legal system and come up with a correct outcome, he actually has a right to say, listen what has been given is a report and until it has been tested in the court of law, how can we accept what is said.Kagiso Pooe, Public policy specialist and lecturer at North West University
