Economic Freedom Fighters leader Julias Malema invited journalists in a conference at Braamfontein, Johannesburg pertaining the issue of VBS Mutual Bank scandals.
Malema have been interrogated by the journalists publicly concerning the VBS Mutual Bank saga and other past linked to him. He have been asked questions by the journalists invited and have answers publicly to the reporters.
Malema in his interrogation conversation he told the reporters he got nothing to hide and he have never benefited any cent from the VBS. He further says, "my family is in business, therefore, his brothers have got nothing to do with the hung Limpopo municipalities, they are in business. He says they are involved in livestock".
EFF leader moreover said, "it cannot be that a tender of 50 million could collapse the Limpopo budget. He says that the aim has always been to smear me. The premier, MEC and all officials involved are still in government but he is the one smeared with the scandal".
Among the journalists who have been invited are Daily Maverick reporter Pauli van Wyk who did not appear to the conference. Pauli who has written extensively on the VBS scandal declined the invite based on the fact that the publication she works for has been entirely banned from all EFF's press conference. Pauli says, she will resume attending open and equitable press conference when they are officially and publically unbanned. According to the EFF's Dali Mpofu, "Daily Maverick is now unbanned until further notice".
Malema in a series of tweets explained," the decision to host the interrogation came after SABC senior political reporter Samkelo Maseko asked the NPA, during its media briefing update on its progress on the bank probe, on who to hold accountable for the collapse of the Mutual Bank, if it would be investigating Malema and some EFF members who were implicated in a looting of the bank.
