South Africa Parliament has stepped in probe Floyd Shivambu, after Malema apparently refused to suspend his deputy, for lack of evidence against him.
After days of public reaction and outburst the South Africa National parliament’s joint committee on ethics and members’ interests has finally decided to probe into EFF deputy president Floyd Shivambu over payments he allegedly received via his brother.
The probe is as a reaction to Democratic Alliance DA complaint to the committee about Shivambu allegedly getting R10-million from his brother Brian Shivambu‚ who was allegedly paid R16-million via the bank.
The leadership of the opposition party noted in a statement on Wednesday that it welcomed the swiftness with which the ethics committee responded to their complaint and hoped that “the same expeditiousness will be applied to the investigation”.
DA MP Phumzile van Damme:
“We call on the ethics committee to conduct a hearing and for it to be open to the public‚ given the public interest in the matter and as per the code of conduct‚”
