EFF leader Julius Malema wants to challenge the findings of the forensic investigation which uncovered large-scale fraud and corruption perpetrated by shady officials within VBS, supported by a network of thugs with influence over key investors.

Brian Shivambu, the brother of EFF deputy leader Floyd Shivambu, stands accused of receiving about R16million from VBS. Many in the EFF argue that the party cannot be held liable for the actions of family members of its senior officials.
