Many felt the EFF with a reputation of urging those accused of corruption to resign, the opposition party would have applied same rule to its leader fingered in the controversial VBS scandal.

Following the pressure, Limpopo ANC treasurer Danny Msiza has stepped down from that position after he was embroiled in the VBS Mutual Bank scandal.

In October, a forensic report compiled on behalf of the SA Reserve Bank into allegations at VBS by advocate Terry Motau and Werksmans Attorneys placed Msiza as a commission agent in Limpopo, which ensured that municipalities illegally deposited funds into VBS.

The ANC in Limpopo on Wednesday confirmed that Msiza “accepted” a decision by the ANC’s national working committee that he must step aside until his name was cleared.
