Tweet from the official account of the party later confirmed that they came to the second part of their "tour".
According to the party, the evidence against Gordhan and Nene "refers to the Internal Audit Report of the Treasury, which identified cases of corruption in the institution, in the form of funds of 4.3 billion."

The charges against Malema and EFF meanwhile relate to their alleged role in the VBS scandal. Message, Big bank robbery lawyer Terry Motau, named Brian Brian, deputy FF Floyd Shivambu, as one of the 53 people who "earnestly" received money from the bank. Later, reports in The Daily Maverick and Mail and Guardian linked Malema, Shivambu and EFF directly to the scandal.
Rather than picking a party in Gordhan vs Malema Beef, BLF decided to try to fight them.
"BLF believes that there is no difference between Malema and Gordhan, in fact both use the white monopoly capital and simply want to continue the looting with impunity," the statement said.
