JOHANNESBURG – EFF leader Julius Malema said on Monday that the party’s deputy president Floyd Shivambu showed the party his bank statements from 2014, and they could not find the cash payments.
He asked the Daily Maverick journalist to provide proof that such a payment was made to his deputy.
“I can tell you that in the monies that exchanged hands between Floyd and Brian, and all his relatives, it doesn't come anywhere close to R10m. All I want you to do is give me documents, all I want is you to list payments… that he received this amount on this day.
“We will show that to him (Floyd) and he will have to come and explain… and he has a right to refuse to do so, because the onus is on us to prove. In the calculations we made, we never received the millions and that is what troubles me… where does the amount of R10m come from?” he asked.
On Tuesday, Shivambu again distanced himself from allegations that he received R10 million from his brother Brian, after the latter was paid R16m by the bank for doing consultancy work for Vele Investments.
