'Account number is not the right number of digits on alleged Gordhan account'

News24 is reporting that the charges by the Economic Freedom Fighters against Minister Pravin Gordhan contain various unexplained discrepancies.

The publication took the liberty of investigating the information contained in the charge sheet by the EFF.

Investigative journalist at News24 Kyle Cowan says based on the information that the EFF disseminated to the media, the chances that Gordhan has such a bank account in Canada are zero.

We have taken a deep look into the account number they have provided and the location of the bank and we found that it doesn't all add up.

The account number is not the right number of digits whichever way you look at it. The name of the street is spelled wrong.
