Meanwhile, the committee has recommended the firing of Merafong City Local Municipality mayor, Maphefo Mogale-Letsie, and her former West Rand District counterpart and now MP, Boyce Maneli over the VBS scandal.

The West Rand invested R81-million into the now-defunct bank, while Merafong invested R50-million.

The party leadership has endorsed the recommendation, together with another matter relating to Johannesburg mayor, Geoff Makhubo, who has been let off the hook.

Makhubo was accused of improperly pocketing millions through a company he had shares in, while he was also the political head of the city's finance and treasury division.

The hearings will begin on Monday.
