'The ANC should pay back the R2 million from VBS if they received it'

More names from the VBS Mutual bank scandal are coming to the surface.

Now it is alleged that the African National Congress received R2 million from the bank for its 2016 elections campaign.

This follows reports that the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) also received R1.3 million from the bank.

It goes beyond the ANC getting money, even in his discussion he says he gave money to the SACP, ANC, EFF and the DA.
