Economic Freedom Fighters Commander in Chief and President Julius Malema was in a conversation with 5 Journalists today, 25 June at 12h00 noon at the EFF headquarters in Johannesburg. Malema invited a group of journalists to interrogate him on VBS SAGA. He further explained the reason to have an interrogation which came after Samkelo Maseko, SABC senior political reporter had asked the NPA on who to hold accountable for the collapse of the mutual bank, the progress of the bank probe as well as if the NPA will be investigating Malema and some of the EFF member who were involved in the collapse of the bank.

Malema told Maseko that the jounalists can ask whatever question they wish, from bank statements, VBS, on point and the collapse of Limpopo. This comes after Pauli Van Wyk, the former Mail and Guardian and current Daily Maverick investigative journalist made accusations between the years 2018 and 2019, were she reported how Julius Malema as some EFF leaders looted millions of money from the bank for their own benefits.

Julius Malema said “I’m not close with anyone who benefited from VBS”. He furthermore said he has nothing to hide. He said he also told Maseko to invite Van Wyk to also be part of the interrogation. Malema also said “I’ll resign if there’s proof we benefited from VBS bank”. “Those who robbed the poor should be arrested, he said”.

Malema also indicated that the EFF have already gone through its books to see if the donations from VBS were ever received, and nothing of that nature was found. He again said it does not make sense that he is still regarded as one who collapsed Limpopo. He again said the intention is to legitimise him.
