'The EFF presser was about blaming Pravin Gordhan'
The Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) has thrown its support behind its deputy president Floyd Shivambu over the VBS scandal.
The Reserve Bank released The Great Bank Heist report last week which detailed how almost R2 billion was brazenly stolen from the bank with over R16 million given to Shivambu’s brother Brian in gratuitous payments.
Eyewitness News reporter Clement Manyathela attended the briefing and says the EFF leadership say they have gone through Shivambu's bank statement and they didn't find traces of the R10 million he allegedly received from his brother.
