Johannesburg - There is currently no basis or evidence to take action against EFF deputy president Floyd Shivambu, says EFF leader Julius Malema.
Malema has hit out at calls from the public for the party to take action against his deputy over claims that he was paid R10 million from funds looted from the Venda Building Society (VBS).
The party held a wide-ranging press conference on Tuesday in Joburg.
Shivambu is accused of receiving R10 million from his younger brother Brian, who is accused of illegally pocketing R16 million from VBS.
The details of payments from VBS to Brian were detailed in the VBS heist report which was released last week. The report detailed that 53 people were illegally paid various amounts totalling R1.89 billion from VBS over a number of years.
