Tjo! Twitter is on fire over Floyd Shivambu, his brother and that VBS payment
As EFF deputy president Floyd Shivambu remains mum about his brother's alleged involvement in the VBS Bank scandal, Twitter has been on fire about the issue.
The South African Reserve Bank released a forensic report on VBS which revealed that the bank had been defrauded in municipal funds and taxpayers money amounting to billions of rand.
The EFF released a statement on Wednesday stating it had "noted" the report, but made no reference to Brian Shivambu - who had been identified as the EFF leader's brother - and was named as an alleged recipient of over R16m.
On Twitter the hashtags #VBSBankHeist and #Floyd have been trending since the revelations.
Floyd must respond
The EFF and Floyd got VBS cash. It’s kak when you arrogantly lecture everyone about nationalizing banks and then get caught stealing from a bank.— Chester Missing (@chestermissing) October 11, 2018
Anger over the looting
The thing with corruption in government is that unlike in the private sector, it affects the poorest of the poor and hence I won't shut up about it or be intimidated by insults.— Ms_Gupta🇿🇦 (@African_Spring) October 11, 2018
I don't care who is doing the stealing, it is my #CountryDuty to make noise about it. #VBSBankHeist
