Two accountants fail to appear at SAICA hearings into VBS, with no excuse given

The first two accountants implicated in the VBS Mutual bank scandal, Andile Ramavhunga and Tshifhiwa Matodzi, have failed to appear at the hearing by the South Africa Institute of Chartered Accountants.

Ramavhunga and Matodzi are part of nine members named in Advocate Terry Motau’s 'Great Bank Heist' report which details how R1.8 billion was brazenly stolen from the mutual bank.

They did not provide any reasons to the committee as to why they were absent.

The committee wanted to ensure that processes were followed when delivering the notices. They called the legal offices to find out if mails were sent and the personal details were correct.
