Province hail VBS arrests

By: Kenny Mathivha

Limpopo Provincial Government has noted the recent arrests of those implicated in the much talked about VBS saga by the Hawks earlier yesterday.

“In 2018 when I released forensic audit results, I said the law must take its course ,and this are some of the results “, said Premier Mathabatha.

The Premier had earlier in 2018 appointed a forensic audit led by the Department of Treasury to look into several millions of rand deposits by Municipalities into the VBS bank. Indeed the report found wide plundering and illegal investments in the VBS Bank.

“Through the recommendations of that report, we took necessary remedial actions, several punitive actions were meted against municipal employees and politicians ,and we still believe the law enforcement agencies should follow up and make more arrests”’ said Chupu.

“I do hope the poorest of the poor, the pensioners and investors who lost several millions in the bank start to see justice being done”, he concluded
