A member of parliament for the EFF has accused party leader and his deputy Julius Malema and Floyd Shivambu of using party money to fund their lifestyles.
Thembinkosi Rawula, an MP who also sits on the public enterprise committee, took to Facebook on Friday to make the accusations. According to Rawula, Malema and Shivambu have allegedly taken more than R35m belonging to the party for personal use.
This money, according to Rawula, includes R25m the EFF gets from the National Assembly, R10m membership funds, R1.7m from councillors’ contributions, as well more than R400,000 contribution by the MPs.
“All these monies are centralised in the EFF under the control, abuse and dictatorship of Julius Malema and Floyd Shivambu. They have made it clear that this is their organisation and all of you have come to join us, not the other way round.
In the EFF, there is a treasurer-general called Leigh Ann Marthys, unfortunately she only administers petty cash of the EFF,” said Rawula.
