VBS Bank scandal
Cogta oversight committee
committee on governance and traditional affairs
Several municipalities illegally invested their money in the bank before it collapsed last year.

Parliament's Committee on Governance and Traditional Affairs (Cogta) is on a two-day visit in Limpopo to assess the state of those areas which have been affected by the VBS Mutual Bank scandal.

The aim of the visit is to see if municipalities have been able to deliver services to their people.

Several municipalities illegally invested their money in the bank before it collapsed last year.

The committee will also focus on those municipalities that have repeatedly failed to get clean audits.

Eyewitness News reporter Bonga Dlulane has more on the story.

When I spoke earlier to the spokesperson of the committee, he said that they have spoken to the AG [attorney general] and have gotten a breakdown of how many municipalities are in the red, how many owe money, how many have never gotten clean audits and what is happening with that situation.

Bonga Dlulane, Reporter - EWN

Now they want to hear from the people who need services delivered by municipalities who haven't been able to do so.

The committee is scheduled to hold a public meeting with various stakeholders on their second day this Friday.
