JOHANNESBURG: Msiza has approached the High Court in Pretoria to set aside the findings and conclusions of advocate Terry Motau’s report.

The ANC’s Integrity Commission says all party members implicated in the VBS bank scandal must step aside from leadership positions as well as party activities.

Acting Secretary General of the ANC Youth League in Limpopo Matome Moremi Tautsoala says the Youth League welcomes the decision taken by the Integrity Commission which is inconsistent with the call they made earlier last week.

He says the issue of VBS is a serious matter which affects the poor communities and putting service delivery in those affected communities on hold.

It is also reported that George Mashamba, who is the Integrity Commission Chairperson, said he doesn’t know why the implicated individuals did not appear before the commission. There were no reasons provided for their absence.

He says Danny Msiza has approached the High Court in Pretoria to set aside the findings and conclusions of advocate Terry Motau’s report. 

“That’s why we are saying while they are trying to clear their names they must step aside and allow the ANC to redeem what is left of the ANC,” Tautsoala said. 

Tautsoala says the mayors in the affected municipalities should also be instructed to resign because they were also part of the ‘famous meeting’ at a Polokwane hotel.

He says this shows that it was the mayors who gave instructions to the CFOs and Municipal Managers to deposit money into VBS, therefore, they should either be suspended or should resign.
