Gauteng ANC mum on defending those implicated in VBS

The ANC in Gauteng remains silent over its defence of politicians implicated in the VBS scandal.

It’s rejected the provincial integrity committee’s recommendation to fire three of them.

They are Merafong mayor Maphefo Letsie, MP Boyce Maneli and Community Safety MEC Faith Mazibuko for her outburst over the so-called Combi Courts.

A total of R127-million of taxpayer money from two Gauteng municipalities was flushed down the VBS drain.

To date, no one has been arrested for the municipalities’ unlawful deposits and the looting of R2-billion from the now-defunct bank.

Despite warnings from the National Treasury, then West Rand mayor Maneli – who’s now ANC MP – defended the unlawful deposits.

A forensic investigation by the Gauteng government cleared Letsie and Maneli of wrongdoing.


But at the weekend, the integrity committee recommended that the two be fired nonetheless.

The provincial executive committee rejected that recommendation but referred it to the party’s national leadership for a final decision.

The ANC in Gauteng says it will only comment after issuing a formal statement.
