Parliament’s Ethics Committee is to recommend to the National Assembly that Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) Chief Whip, Floyd Shivambu be fined nine days salary after the committee found Shivambu breached the Code of Ethical Conduct and Disclosure of Members’ Interests.

The committee found that Shivambu failed to disclose payments to him from the Venda Mutual Bank Society to the tune of R180 000.

The committee says the monies were paid through a company called Sgameka Projects in 2017. It says this was identified through an affidavit from the liquidators of VBS.
