Two Limpopo officials were implicated in a report into looting at VBS Mutual Bank and suspended by the ANC. Yet their boss, Limpopo premier Stanley Mathabatha saw fit to lobby the ANC’S NEC to have his deputy Florence Radzilani and treasurer-general Danny Msiza reinstated. His reason? The pair were not arrested along with the first group of suspected looters. It’s an indictment of Mathabatha and utterly undermines President Cyril Ramaphosa’s anti-corruption platform. Unless
Mathabatha really wants a gangster state.
