'R1.8 million of the illicit VBS funds went to the EFF and Julius Malema'
It seems the EFF has been caught with its hands in the cookie jar after weeks of denying any links with VBS Mutual Bank.
An article in the Daily Maverick has provided proof of a link between Malema and more than a million rand that was syphoned off from the bank.
Investigative journalist Pauli Van Wyk explains how Julius Malema personally benefitted from the systematic raiding of VBS bank.
Through two front companies, the EFF and Julius Malema, personally and in the capacity of the company derived direct benefit from the stolen funds. We have traced over 1.8 million directed to the EFF which included the funding for their party anniversary in 2017.Pauli Van Wyk, investigative journalist
About R430 000 went to a luxury house in Sandown, Johannesburg and the house is registered in the EFF's name and it is a house that Julius Malema has lived in for a very long time.Pauli van Wyk, investigative journalist, Daily Maverick
