A former Mp, Vincent Smith, also surrendered himself to the police on Thursday over his links to facilities company Bosasa.

Hawks said that over the next few weeks, they will be adding to the list of those charged for money that was looted from the VBS Mutual Bank.

Hawks spokesperson Hangwani Mulaudzi said: “What is critical is that it is issues of corruption we are looking at. So, corruption will take centre stage, of course, there might be other charges that will always be added.”

“So, let’s just wait for them to finalise everything and wait for them to communicate it.”
