Malema and Shivambu trend as Hawks make more VBS arrests

It appears that Mzansi cannot wait for EFF Leader Julius Malema and his deputy, Floyd Shivambu, to be imprisoned. Allegations that the two have benefited from the VBS fraud case, which has left many people impoverished, abound. These allegations, however, have been rejected by the two.

The Hawks detained three additional people in the VBS investigation on Tuesday. The trio will appear in the Pretoria Specialised Crimes Court on Wednesday, according to the police. The suspects face corruption and money laundering accusations. One of the suspects is the former municipal manager of Fetakgomo-Greater Tubatse Municipality, as well as the former CFO and a businessman.

Shivambu and Malema were trending on Twitter almost immediately as the news of the trio's detention spread. Many tweeps commented that they, too, cannot wait for their arrest. "Three additional persons were detained this morning in connection with the VBS investigation." Each arrest brings the investigation closer to EFF founder Julius Malema and his sidekick Floyd Shivambu. The wheels of justice turn more slowly, but they still turn. "Julius and Floyd's time is drawing near," a Twitter user stated.

Malema and Shivambu, according to public perception, had a hand in the VBS scam. People assume that's where they acquired the R1.8 million Mercedes-Benz purchased by King Buyelekhaya Dalindyebo.
