Action to be taken against ANC officials implicated in VBS report
The African National Congress (ANC) says it will act swiftly against party officials who have been implicated in the VBS Mutual Bank 'heist' report.
On Wednesday, the Reserve Bank released details of the R1.8 billion fraud and corruption at the bank.
Over 50 individuals have been implicated, including the deputy chairperson of the ANC in Limpopo Florence Radzilani, who allegedly invested R300 million from the Vhembe District Municipality in the embattled bank and in turn received bribes.
Provincial treasurer Danny Msiza has also been identified in the report as a kingpin who made sure municipalities made illegal deposits with the bank.
The ANC’s head of elections Fikile Mbalula has told media that the party will act decisively.
Eyewitness News reporter Clement Manyathela has more details on the ANC's reaction.
