Daily Maverick’s investigative journalist, Pauli Van Wyk has been trolled on social media after she rejected Julius Malema’s invitation to a public interrogation where the EFF leader seeks to clear the speculation that he is among those who looted VBS money.
Malema says he wants to set the record straight and he has invited five journalists from different media houses to interrogate him pertaining the VBS Scandal, bank statements and the collapse of Limpopo.
Van Wyk however rejected the invitation citing that the Daily Maverick and amaBhungane are still officially banned from EFF press conferences, hence she will not attend.
“Daily Maverick and amaBhungane are still banned from EFF press conferences. I will consider attending open and equitable press conferences when we are officially and publicly unbanned,” she said.
Her trollers on social media are arguing that by refusing to accept Malema’s invite to public interrogation, she might be stifling the truth and her credibility as an investigative journalist who is investigating the VBS scandal might be at stake.
