I had nothing to do with VBS - Florence Radzilani
The ANC Peter Mokaba Region has written to the party's headquarters demanding the region's leader, who has been accused of benefiting from the VBS scandal, be reinstated.
Limpopo ANC deputy chairperson Florence Radzilani and treasurer Danny Msiza were asked to step down after they were implicated in the scandal.
It is alleged that Radzilani deposited R300 million into VBS Bank when she was still mayor of Vhembe but she says she had nothing to do with VBS.
She says she was shocked to discover her name was mentioned in Advocate Terry Motau's report into VBS.
I still maintain that I had nothing to do with VBS.Florence Radzilani, Former executive mayor - Vhembe District
The matter in Terry Motau's report where I'm implicated, it is a WhatsApp conversation between two people and my phone was never requested to check if indeed I had a conversation with the two people mentioned in the report.Florence Radzilani, Former executive mayor - Vhembe District
Even the investigators never afforded me the opportunity to be heard.Florence Radzilani, Former executive mayor - Vhembe District
Radzilani says the matter is currently before the courts whereby Advocate Motau and the two people mentioned in the report will have to prove they had a relationship with her.
She says the Provincial Forensic Investigation Report found that she was never involved in issues of VBS.
