Malema was facilitating an open inquiry meeting with a gathering of writers which he met to straightforwardly handle inquiries on an assortment of debates encompassing him and the gathering. 

In 2018, an examination report of the SA Revenue Service (Sars), named The Incomparable Bank Heist, uncovered that Brian Shivambu got R16 million from the now fallen VBS Shared Bank.

Malema excused charges that he and Shivambu had taken an interest in the R2 billion plundering of the bank, including that he had no connections with VBS, which overwhelmingly kept reserve funds of retired people and poor people. 

"I have never addressed VBS individuals. The individual I know in VBS, and not realize that much about that individual, is Matodzi, the executive of Vele Speculations, who was acquainted with me at the gathering of the VhaVenda Ruler Mphephu. I have never had any dealings with them," he said. 

He said he was happy to up his types of correspondence for examination as the examination concerning the adventure is in progress by the Falcons and the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) to demonstrate that he had no connections with the individuals who drove or plundered the bank. 

"The Birds of prey approach every one of our types of correspondence. They can even apply Area 205, get it from the pass judgment and go into the historical backdrop of our telephones. 

"For this situation, they have done it by the route with the VBS partners who are captured. No place will you ever discover me in any type of correspondence with any of the VBS individuals," he said.

At the core of the claims against Malema and Shivambu are bank cards of Mahuna Speculations and Terrific Azania into which the VBS plunder was kept and which seemed, by all accounts, to be consistently in the ownership of the two chiefs as they tailed them when they voyaged and made buys. 

The previous ANC Youth Association pioneer guarded himself by saying the buys with the bank card tailed him since his sibling was consistently where he was. 

"He is a sibling of mine. We cooperate so there is no issue if his card gets the chance to be utilized where I am. He is here now and the card may be utilized some place here now," he said. 

The EFF created contention when it freely contradicted the setting of VBS under curatorship as the gathering was blamed for shielding its supposed advantages from the bank's plundering. 

Malema said the legislature needed to "spare the bank and capture the hoodlums". 

"I consider that to be attempting to quietness us in securing a dark bank. 

"The VBS should have been protected in light of the fact that it was one of the dark banks and it ought to have been given a full financial permit and anybody found to have disregarded the financial guidelines ought to be charged and boycotted not to work on banking anyplace in the nation," he said.t
