| Ousted EFF member turns to party's national people's assembly for recourse

- | 5 months ago

Just days after the EFF upheld a decision to expel defiant KwaZulu-Natal provincial command team member Lungi Gabuza, she has decided to take the matter to its national people‘s assembly (NPA) in December.

An appeal in the matter was dismissed after Gabuza made representations to EFF deputy president Floyd Shivambu, secretary-general Godrich Gardee and his deputy, Hlengiwe Maxon. According to City Press, Gabuza refused to be bullied into giving up her place on the party‘s parliamentary list in order to make way for the EFF leadership‘s preferred party member.

Allegations have been made that party leader Julius Malema wanted former Gauteng treasurer Omphile Maotwe to replace Gabuza, who was elected number 56 at the party‘s first elective congress.
