In elaboration of the criminality of the EFF, Julius Malema, Floyd Shivambu, Brian Shivambu and Matsobane Phaleng

7. ‘The Great Bank Heist’ Indicates that Brian Shivambu, who is Floyd Shivambu’s younger brother, received an amount of R16,148,569 as ‘gratuitous payments’ from VBS Mutual Bank.

8. While the report does not indicate where that money received by Brian Shivambu ended up, further evidence as elaborated below suggests that a considerable amount went to the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF), Julius Malema and Floyd Shivambu.

9. In ‘The Shivambu Brothers and the Great VBS Heist’, an article written by Pauli Van Wyk for Scorpio (Daily Maverick’s Investigative Unit) and published on 11 October 2018 on the newspaper’s website, the following allegations are made by Van Wyk who in turn says she has been informed by sources:

a. The EFF as well as its Deputy President, Floyd Shivambu, have both ‘benefited financially from the VBS Mutual Bank scandal’;

b. Floyd Shivambu received about R 10 million ‘VBS-rand’ via Brian Shivambu;

c. ‘The evidence (which is kept under ‘lockdown’) detailing the Shivambu brothers’ nefarious activities consists of bank statements of the relevant entities – it was not included in the report to SARB because the investigators’ mandate related specifically to VBS’;

d. ‘[T]here were more money flows from VBS through other fronts to the EFF and Shivambu,”

e. The EFF allegedly unlawfully received payment of R1.3-million from the VBS Mutual Bank into its (EFF’s) bank account (this was confirmed by three sources to Scorpio’s Van Wyk); and

f. The said three sources further revealed that Brian Shivambu allegedly transmitted approximately R10 million via Sgameka Projects (of which Brian is the sole director) into Floyd Shivambu’s personal banking account;

10. In a further article ‘VBS bank heist: EFF’s family ties and moneyed connections’
published on the DM website on 21 November 2018, Scorpio’s Pauli Van Wyk (the author), informed by sources makes the following further allegations:

On why VBS funds entering and leaving Sgameka are proceeds of crime

a. Evidently as indicated in the Great Bank Heist report, the funds of deceased mine workers (in respect of which widows and orphans were beneficiaries), municipalities, and stokvels were deposited at VBS. This money was stolen by politicians and others who were well connected via different schemes including through fake accounts. To this end management of VBS shifted this money out of the bank through various illegal schemes.

b. Sgameka Trading Pty Ltd (Sgameka), which is a business that is managed and owned by Brian Shivambu, is one of the primary beneficiaries of illicit VBS funds. Brian Shivambu contended that he received money only from Vele. The investigation by Scorpio indicates this to not be true.

c. The Scorpio investigation found 4 factors which indicate ‘that Sgameka operated as a front and a slush fund for the EFF and select EFF leaders’, namely:

i. ‘WhatsApps: Scorpio has a series of verified WhatsApps between chairman of VBS Tshifhiwa Matodzi and Phopi Mukhodobwane, general manager of treasury at VBS, where a transfer of money from related party Malibongwe Petroleum Pty Ltd to Shivambu’s Sgameka is discussed’. In this regard, ‘[o]n 8 June 2017, Matodzi requested a transfer of R5-million into the account of Sgameka’. Matodzi remarked as follows about Sgameka: “This is an extremely strategic account.’ Since as alleged Matodzi ‘kept himself busy with bribing influential politicians in order to bamboozle municipalities into investing in VBS, his remark over Sgameka’s influence is hair-raising’

ii. ‘Email: Floyd Shivambu is linked directly to Sgameka by emails from his personal gmail account relating to an additional property.‘

iii. ‘Sgameka’s income: Sgameka had no legitimate income, did not operate like a normal business bank account and paid no taxes’.

iv. ‘Sgameka’s true income streams: Sgameka received R16,1-million from companies named Robvet Pty Ltd, Wegezi Power Holdings Pty Ltd, Vele Investments ltd, Malibongwe Petroleum as well as cash deposits and what is labelled as “allocations”. Sgameka (accordingly) did not only receive money for (rendering) “consulting services” to Vele, as Brian Shivambu claimed last month’.

d. Thirteen (13) payments amounting to R16,148,569 were made to Sgameka with illicit VBS funds between June 2017 and February 2018. Taking into account the income stream of Sgameka, ‘The Great Bank Heist’ report indicated as follows in relation to the companies concerned:

i. Malibongwe Petroleum

A false deposit of R40 million was created for Malibongwe Petroleum. This company became a mechanism to illegally shift money from VBS.

ii. Vele

The company was headed by Matodzi and acquired majority shareholding in VBS bank via fraud. Moreover it benefitted from countless fraudulent transactions. It was found to be the ‘principle beneficiary of the looting’. Furthermore ‘VBS and Vele have been operated as a single criminal enterprise with Matodzi firmly at the helm’.

iii. Robvet

To procure investments by municipalities in VBS, Robvet was operated as a slush fund to make payments of ‘commissions’ to targeted municipal managers and politicians of influence. To this end VBS funds were illicitly shifted directly to Robvet, or to Robvet via the Vele group companies not limited to Malibongwe Petroleum and Wegezi. The modus operandi entailed payments being made from Robvet to front companies, mayors, politicians and municipal managers either in cash or via electronic transfers. The Great Bank Heist report found that VBS effected payments from Robvet to front companies to benefit a number of municipal officials. Furthermore the said report indicates that the management of VBS ‘did not regard the payments (made by Robvet) as legitimate operating expenses and sought to conceal them’.

e. ‘The Great Bank Heist’ found the income stream of Sgameka to be criminal. The fact that Sgameka received funds from Robvet indicates that those politicians controlling Sgameka were involved in influencing municipalities to action investments in VBS.

f. The illicit shifting of money from Sgameka read with the WhatsApps message indicated above regarding the ‘extreme strategic’ nature of the Sgameka account suggests criminality on the part of the perpetrators.

g. Evidently and as indicated in bank statements, upon money being received into the Sgameka account it was immediately shifted mostly to EFF, Mahuna Investments and the Grand Azania Pty Ltd accounts. Sgameka was accordingly used to siphon VBS funds illicitly. (See Annexure “A”, Sgameka’s bank statement).

h. Sgameka did not receive any income from any entity except from a number of ‘VBS schemes’. It received the final deposit on 23 February 2018. This was shortly prior to VBS being put under curatorship (which came into effect on 11 March 2018). To this end money was only moved out of the Sgameka account since February 2018. The movement of money into the Sgameka account is accordingly compromised and therefore illegal. In this regard the following payments are significant:
i. Four payments amounting to over R1.2 million were effected into two bank accounts of EFF between July 2017 and December 2017.

ii. Nine payments totaling in excess of R4.8 million was paid by Sgameka into the account of Mahuna between June 2017 and February 2018.

On VBS funds illicitly shifted to Mahuna via Sgameka

i. The owner and sole director of Mahuna is Matsobane Phaleng who is the cousin of Julius Malema.

j. The Mahuna account, same as with Sgameka, was operated as a slush fund. To this end it had no proper expenses and income. It also did not pay any tax. Matsobane Phaleng was a front to siphon funds for the EFF and Julius Malema.

k. Eight payments amounting to R110,000 and which was described as
‘director’s fees’ was moved out of the Mahuna account between July 2017 and February 2018 and was, according to Scorpio’s sources, paid to Malema’s cousin, Matsobane Phaleng. In this regard the funds payed out by Mahuna was previously received by it from Sgameka.

EFF benefited from VBS funds illicitly moved via Mahuna and Sgameka

l. Regarding Scorpio’s report in October 2018, ‘that the EFF received around R1.3-million in illicit VBS funds and that Sgameka paid about R10-million into Floyd Shivambu’s account … [u]pon further scrutiny of the evidence, it is clear that the income streams were more complex, based on the use of various fronts in order to siphon illicit funds towards various role-players.’ To this end ‘Scorpio found more illicit VBS funds than initially mentioned earmarked for the EFF.’

m. Yet another amount (over and above the R1.3 million mentioned above) in the sum of R600,000 designated for the EFF was moved from Mahuna into various bank accounts between July and August 2017. It is indeed significant that the movement of monies from Mahuna was described on the bank statements as ‘July 26’ and ‘EFF GP’. 26 July is in fact the birthday of the EFF thus evidencing that the payments described as “July 26” were payments made for the 2017 birthday celebration of EFF.

n. Scorpio has identified in excess of R1.8 million of VBS funds that has been illicitly moved from Mahuna and Sgameka so as to ‘prop up the EFF.’

o. The Scorpio investigation indicates that there are further funds that have been allocated for the EFF that were shifted from Mahuna.

On the VBS funds illicitly allocated via Mahuna to the Sandown property situated at 49a Edward Rubenstein

p. Julius Malema rented a property located at 49a Edward Rubenstein, Sandown, Johannesburg from 2012.

q. The neighbours of the property situated at 49a Edward Rubenstein have indicated that Malema resided at the said property until very recently. Malema has indicated that he currently stays in Goodwood, Cape Town.

r. Title deed documents seen by Scorpio suggest that during or about June 2017, the relevant property was transferred to the ‘Economic Freedom Fighters’. The buying price was reflected as R5,250,000. Dali Mpofu, the national chairperson of EFF, was involved in facilitating the deal. Mpofu did not react to Scorpio’s questions. The origin of the funds used to pay and the total amounts paid thus far for the house, are currently unknown, according to Scorpio. Julius Malema has avoided answering questions about the funds for the property in Sandown. He had said to Scorpio, “The EFF will answer that one”. Moreover Mbuyiseni Ndlozi, the National Spokesperson of EFF, responded as follows via Whatsapp when he was questioned on the issue, “we took a loan from one of the financial institutions”. He also denied that the house was allocated to Malema to live in.

s. Three payments totaling R430,000, which was allocated for the said property, was moved from Mahuna between July 2017 and February 2018 into various bank accounts. Scorpio’s investigation suggests that these bank accounts are in turn connected to a pool and the relevant property which is in EFF’s name. Scorpio’s sources indicate that there is evidence of more VBS funds illicitly moving from Mahuna to this said property.

t. There is further evidence, according to Scorpio’s key sources, of more VBS funds being illicitly used to fund Julius Malema’s lifestyle including that of his family and children.

u. Julius Malema and Floyd Shivambu were evidently aware of proxies used to siphon money. They were also aware that the EFF as well as themselves were illegal beneficiaries of VBS funds.

Concluding remarks

v. The EFF, Julius Malema and Floyd Shivambu received illicit payments from VBS Mutual Bank via a fraudulent scheme operated in a similar way to the scheme used in the 2012 ‘On Point Engineering’ corruption saga. To this end Juilius Malema was charged with fraud, corruption, money laundering and racketeering in that he used fronts and proxies to siphon money (to himself and his family) illegally obtained via fraudulent government contracts. While Malema denied any liability, the former Public Protector Thuli Madonsela concluded that he illegally benefited from the ‘On Point Engineering’ scheme. Moreover Madonsela found that Malema misused the Ratanang trust to siphon funds illicitly.

w. Effectively, Sgameka, a company owned by Brian Shivambu (Floyd Shivambu’s brother) made dubious payments to Mahuna, a company owned by Matsobane Phaleng (cousin of Julius Malema). These companies in turn conducted business like slush funds as they moved funds to wherever it was required. Julius Malema and Floyd Shivambu thus via the agencies of Matsobane Phaleng and Brian Shivambu respectively, looted the money of the poor to fund the EFF and their political and private interests.

10. We, Black First Land First (BLF), submit that the above evidence indicates criminal conduct not limited to fraud, theft, corruption and money laundering – on the part of:

a. Those indicated in paragraph 6 herein.
b. the EFF
c. Julius Malema, the President of EFF
d. Floyd Shivambu, the Deputy President of the EFF
e. Brian Shivambu, the brother of Floyd Shivambu; and
f. Matsobane Phaleng, the cousin of Julius Malema.

11. We are hereby charging the above parties accordingly.

12. To this end the SAPS is requested to subpoena, amongst others, the following persons / representatives of entities for questioning and further inquiry towards facilitating the proper administration of justice herein:

a.Those indicated in paragraph 6 herein.
b. Those implicated in the criminal actions of Brian Shivambu, including:
i. Julius Malema
ii. Floyd Shivambu
iii. The rest of the EFF Central Command Team members
iv. Brian Shivambu
v. Matsobane Phaleng
vi. Pauli Van Wyk

I hereby certify that the deponent knows and understands the content of this affidavit and that it is to the best of his knowledge both true and correct.

AMCU is right – Malema & Ramaphosa must stop using Marikana

AMCU is right – Malema & Ramaphosa must stop using Marikana

Black First Land First (BLF) agrees with the President of the Association of Mineworkers and Construction Union (AMCU), Comrade Union president Joseph Mathunjwa, that both Cyril Ramaphosa and Julius Malema must stop abusing the Marikana massacre for their narrow interests. It is clear that the two old friends are now using the massacre, engineered by Cyril Ramaphosa, to rekindle their political romance.

There is a drive to whitewash the Marikana massacre and to unjustifiably absolve Cyril Ramaphosa of guilt. This means that there will be no real justice. He will get away without fully accounting for the mass killings of workers for profits and escaping the appropriate penalty for his sins, including the payment of reparations. We have seen how Malema has changed his tune on Ramaphosa. He has moved from calling him the ‘murderer of Marikana’ to declaring him as the ‘president who must be respected’.

Mathunjwa is correct when he says:

“The EFF and the ANC have no organisational rights in that mine, therefore, it is very wrong to suggest that the EFF is the gatekeeper for the State President to meet the widows. Those widows are organised, and they are under the banner of AMCU. We are the only trade union there”.

BLF is encouraged by the principled stance of AMCU. We have to always remember that Ramaphosa called for the “concomitant action” against the workers in service of the interests of Lonmin, which is a London based mining house. We must also not forget that Julius Malema has powerful handlers in London – Lord Robin Renwick, amongst others. So the bromance between Mokone and Matamela is a London project signed on the blood of the Marikana workers.

BLF calls for full disclosure of the truth from Ramaphosa on how Lonmin has used him against black workers. Furthermore, we encourage Ramaphosa to approach the legitimate organizations representing the workers and their families to ask for forgiveness as well as pay reparations for the brutal murder of their loved ones for profit.

We have been duped by the EFF’s motion on Land Expropriation Without Compensation

It takes 410 days from the introduction to commencement of a Bill. The introduction of the bill itself is generally not in its final form. It goes through a process of “public consultation, line by line scrutiny and consideration by both the National Assembly and National Council of Provinces, resulting in amendments”. Furthermore, the time it takes to go through the required stages is dependent inter alia on “the length of the Bill, its importance, costing, complexity and how controversial it is”.

To this end the Protection of State Information Bill, because of its controversy resulted in Parliament taking 1344 days to pass it into law. However a bill can be fast tracked. In this context a Bill which is urgent or introduced as a result of a crisis “may be passed in a matter of days”. To this end as pointed out by the Parliamentary Monitoring Group (PMG) on its website, the “National Assembly and the NCOP amended the Sexual Offences Act in three days (in 2012) in response to a Western Cape High Court ruling which deemed some sections of the Act unconstitutional”.

The signing of the Bill by the President into law is not automatic. In this regard he “has the opportunity to assess the constitutionality of a bill and can refer it back to Parliament for reconsideration if he has any reservations”. Also “[w]hen exercising this right, the President seeks counsel and considers submissions and petitions made to him” and this sometimes “includes listening to concerns from beyond the country such as foreign governments and international bodies”.

Once a bill is signed it is triggered into force but it generally “takes some time for it to come into operation”. Moreover, “most provisions in an Act will either come into operation within a set period after assent or at a time fixed by the government” which in turn “gives the government and those stakeholders who are directly affected by the Act time to plan accordingly”. In some instances “an Act may require certain actions to be taken by the Department” prior to it being implemented. In this context, for example, “subordinate legislation (regulations, determinations, rules) may have to be prepared, approved and gazetted”.

Here’s an historical account of the time periods involved with some of the Bills:

Shortest time: introduction to commencement

“21 days: Special Adjustments Appropriation Bill 2007

27 days: Criminal Law (Sexual Offences and Related Matters Amendment Act Amendment Bill 2012

30 days: Regulation of Interception of Communications-Related Information Amendment Bill 2010”

Longest time: introduction and commencement

2812 days: Immigration Amendment Bill 2006

2227 days: Mineral and Petroleum Resource Development Amendment Bill 2007

2094 days: Firearms Control Amendment Bill 2006

The recent motion by the EFF for Land Expropriation without Compensation (LEWC) which was passed in the National Assembly with the majority vote of the ANC and which referred the issue for review to the Constitutional Review Committee is an event that is located at the very beginning of the above process. Hence it will take at least 410 days before the Bill is enacted for commencement. This effectively takes commencement of the Bill beyond the date of the 2019 General Elections.

Moreover both the ANC’s and EFF’s post parliamentary motion clarifications can be summed up in the declaration by EFF leader Julius Malema in allying white fears. To this end Malema says that all land must be expropriated by the state, no-one will own any land – everyone will be allocated land for use. Land from those who are farming and using land productively must not be taken from them. So basically all land (which is all productive land) in the hands of whites must remain in white hands. So while ownership of all land will vest in the state, the use and enjoyment patterns will remain in favour of whites. What this effectively means is that for whites to lose ownership of land makes no difference – they will still dominate and hence have hegemony of this means of production.

All this suggests that both the EFF and the ANC and others who adopted the LEWC motion, have no intention of fast tracking the process – including setting aside the current adopted motion on LEWC and instead finalising the Expropriation Bill that President Zuma returned to the National Assembly in 2016 for further action. The referred Expropriation Bill can be finalised in two months as opposed to the current motion which if realized into a bill will take at least 410 days for commencement.

Furthermore those adopting the motion acted in bad faith knowing full well that:

– the content of the motion does not mean return all land to the black majority without compensation. It means blacks will get reject unproductive land while whites retain all the productive land; and

– the time it will take for the adopted motion to be processed into a Bill and then passed into law will take us well beyond the 2019 General Elections by which time blacks would have already been duped into voting them back into power and it will be too late to reverse their votes.

In all of the above circumstances it is clear that there will be no actual LEWC via the motion referred to the Constitutional Review Committee for review – note review doesn’t mean amendment.

Learn the cold and liberating truth! Land occupations is the only way to real LEWC.

BLF West Rand secretary attacked by EFF

BLF West Rand secretary attacked by EFF

The Regional Secretary of Black First Land First (BLF) in the West Rand and other BLF members were attacked by Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) members in the afternoon of yesterday, 1 September 2017. The BLF members and Regional Secretary, Comrade Basetsana Sekete, were severely assaulted and had to be rushed to Leratong Hostpital. The attack occurred at around 15:00 PM.

BLF members led by the Regional Secretary were engaging in a door to door recruitment drive in Extension 4 when the incident happened. As they were speaking to a person interested in the BLF, EFF members began violently intimidating them. More than 5 males in EFF regalia perpetrated the violence. The EFF members declared that Extension 4 was their (EFF’s) territory and that BLF is not allowed in the area. BLF members naturally disputed this view that shows a lack of understanding the need for political tolerance. Such acts are also illegal.

EFF members have no compunction to assault women, yet their organization claims to fight for women’s rights. We wait to see the outrage from EFF feminists who have historically proven to be selective feminists.

This attack by EFF on BLF members shows that our movement is a threat to the reactionary agenda of London. EFF is being disrespected by Helen Zille every day in their coalition in service of white monopoly capital. EFF never shows any aggression towards land thieves but is too quick to attack blacks.

BLF is opposed to any form of black on black violence. We call upon EFF leader, Julius Malema, to publicly denounce the attack on BLF members by members of his party. It’s the duty of leadership to guide members. Furthermore, BLF calls on Malema to apologise to our members and organisation for these attacks.

A criminal case will be opened against the EFF thugs. Furthermore, the matter will be reported to the Independent Electoral Commission (IEC). Attacks on political opponents is contrary to the law. Also a letter will be sent to Parliament to take action against EFF. Political intolerance must not be tolerated.

BLF shall continue to organise and build structures on the ground everywhere in our country and continent. We are a growing movement that is seen by our people as the alternative to the political parties of our country that are captured by white monopoly capital.

BLF calls for political tolerance in South Africa. The President of BLF, Comrade Mngxitama, will visit the BLF comrades today in West Rand.
