New proof ahead of the high court suggests that ANC Limpopo treasurer general Danny Msiza presumably individually benefited through the wide-scale looting of VBS Mutual Bank, despite their denials

Msiza presumably received more he and his wife are directors, from a middleman who facilitated multimillion-rand unlawful deposits from municipalities into VBS, Kabelo Matsepe than r1.5m paid to a company of which.

Matsepe's business Moshate, additionally presumably assisted in servicing a bond that is r9.5m provided to Msiza's business for the Polokwane home under questionable circumstances by VBS.

Msiza was identified in a report that is explosive advocate Terry Motau, SC, titled the truly amazing bank heist’ , as being a kingpin whom facilitated through their political influence the 'investments' by Limpopo municipalities in VBS bank, totalling vast sums of rands.

VBS ended up being placed directly under curatorship in March this 12 months, which resulted in lots of the municipality's deposits being 'frozen'. These municipalities are now actually dealing with monetary spoil and could be placed under management while they battle to get over the depletion of these coffers.

The officials that are municipal paid 'commissions' or bribes to facilitate the opportunities, that have been utilized to connect money gaps into the bank's books.

Now - despite his denials – proof had been presented in brand new court documents to personally show that Msiza benefited from looted VBS money.

Motau ended up being mandated, as well as Werksmans review Attorneys, by the Prudential Authority (previously the Registrar of Banks) to research findings by the curator, Anoosh Rooplal, that the lender was in fact driven into a situation of economic trouble through massive fraud.

Motau discovered that a lot more than R2bn was stolen.


Msiza, that has been fighting for their life that is political in days, filed a court application in October wanting to challenge Motau's report plus in specific, for paragraphs associated with the are accountable to be "expunged/deleted".

It now appears that their court application has backfired.

Motau's responding documents, that have been offered on Tuesday, have actually revealed evidence that motivated their conclusions and findings that Msiza played a essential part in the VBS looting scheme.

Motau was just expected to supply the court along with his reasons behind including facts and testimony emanating from their research that dealt with Msiza.

Motau annexed WhatsApp messages between Msiza and Kabelo Matsepe, whom Motau described their report being a politically connected fixer "who became a really well-remunerated middleman and acted as being a gatekeeper between VBS additionally the municipalities".

He additionally supplied the court with transcripts of interviews he carried out with different VBS roleplayers.

"The documentary proof demonstrates that the applicant has benefited significantly from Kabelo Matsepe to his relationship along with his company, Moshate Investments," Motau's papers read.

Moshate Investments had received R27m between December 2015 and March 2018.

As a swap, Matsepe would 'introduce' municipalities to VBS and "if the municipality invests", Matsepe would earn a commission – paid from various slush investment reports operated by VBS' bulk shareholder Vele Investments.

Matsepe, the ANCYL that is former leader Limpopo, confirmed he received the payment re re payments, but denied that there clearly was anything illegal afoot.

Your house VBS bought

Motau now highlights what sort of relationship for R9.5m was registered with VBS when you look at the name of Mojovax – an organization of which Msiza and their wife will be the sole directors.

Mojovax joined right into a deed of purchase to obtain the Polokwane home in December 2016. In January 2017, Msiza forwarded the deed of purchase to previous CEO of VBS, Andile Ramavhunga.

Ramavhunga forwarded it to another VBS worker and reported: " Could you please plan this? it is extremely crucial that individuals are diligent concerning this. It really is for the Limpopo treasury TG."

" No application that is proper created for the mortgage center," Motau's court papers read. "the sole record of a software will be present in an incomplete kind."

The proper execution, which Motau connected, revealed that Msiza's business Mojovax ended up being the applicant but no longer details had been supplied, no economic evaluation had been carried out from the business, no supporting documents to show the replacement values and market value of the house had been supplied and lots of parts had been kept blank.

"not surprisingly, it really is clear that Mojovax had been provided a home loan loan center of R9.5m," Motau states.

By might 19, 2017, the transfer for the Polokwane home ended up being done in favor of VBS as well as on May 31, 2017 – following the relationship account is made internally – the r9.5m that is full paid to two law offices in respect of this purchase.

It had been merely as much as Msiza to steadfastly keep up together with his month-to-month repayments.

But, with what is now very nearly the norm for politically connected people who secure loan facilities through VBS under debateable circumstances, he would not.

Alternatively, sporadic re re payments had been produced from Matsepe's company, Moshate - making use of money Moshate received for assisting the unlawful municipal assets.

Motau connected evidence showing that, between 11, 2017 and March 29, 2018, Moshate (Matsepe) paid R716 000 into Mojovax's (Msiza's) bond account with VBS july.

A r1.315m that is further paid from an unknown Standard bank-account - in four components - March 20, May 8, July 4 and July 13, 2018.

"there is no further repayment to the Mojovax relationship account since 13 July 2018," Motau states.

Motau additionally detailed just exactly exactly how Matsepe's Moshate received a R500 000 re re payment from VBS the time before he, in turn, paid R200 000 into Mojovax's relationship account.

In addition, Motau unveiled from bank statements which he obtained of Moshate's records, that Msiza's company (Mojovax) was compensated R1.5m on January 17, 2018 by Matsepe - each and every day after VBS paid R2m to their company, Moshate.
