Johannesburg - Vhembe District Municipality Mayor Florence Radzilani has resigned amid allegations of her involvement in the VBS scandal.
Radzilani resigned in a letter dated December 11, and she insists that she was not involved in the VBS scandal.
"I, therefore, tender my resignation with immediate effect. I would like to reiterate the fact that I have consistently communicated that I was not involved in VBS municipal investments, both officially and privately," Radzilani said in her resignation letter.
The municipality she governed invested millions of rand into VBS and she allegedly involved in encouraging the investment.
She was quoted in text messages to a VBS official asking for a "Christmas" and was allegedly given R300 000 for her work.
