EFF chief whip Floyd Shivambu found himself on the receiving end of MP's jeering in Parliament on Tuesday, when he was heckled to "pay back the money" during a debate on the VBS Mutual Bank scandal.
In 2015, Shivambu questioned when former President Jacob Zuma would "pay back the money" used for Nkandla, his homestead in KwaZulu-Natal. However, in an ironic turn of events, Shivambu found himself in the hot seat after his brother Brian Shivambu was implicated in a report compiled by advocate Terry Motau and Werksmans Attorneys, titled "The great bank Heist".
Earlier this month Shivambu denied receiving R10m from the embattled VBS Mutual Bank in his first direct response to the allegations against him and his brother Brian.
On Tuesday Shivambu stood unfazed as ANC members collectively chanted that he "pay back the money".
"Earlier when we were speaking here there were people who were singing ‘pay back the money’, so I was reminded that imitation is the most sincere but heartless form of flattery. So, we’re flattered as the EFF by those who learned from us," he quipped back.
