EFF's account attached after failing to pay ex-staff

The EFF’s main bank account has been attached for not paying the salaries of former Pietermaritzburg employees who were unfairly dismissed, leaving the party scrambling to pay their debts.

Brian Tawana, the EFF’s former researcher in the KwaZulu-Natal Legislature; Lucky Dlamini, a former administrator; and Sanele Mpulo, a former field worker, obtained a writ of execution against the EFF after the party failed to comply with an earlier labour court ruling ordering it to compensate the applicants. The former employees, who were dismissed by the EFF in 2015, had successfully challenged their dismissal at the Commission for Conciliation, Mediation and Arbitration (CCMA).

Tawana, who was the first applicant in the CCMA matter between the EFF and the dismissed employees, said they had resolved to enforce the writ of execution after all attempts to make the party’s leadership pay the salaries in terms of a court ruling had failed.
