Julius Malema, the EFF leader, said the party called on President Jacob Zuma to retract his application to review the state capture report and threatened to go to court if he doesn’t.
Malema was speaking to the media during a media conference in Braamfontein where he also revealed alleged corruption at Transnet worth R17.4 billion. He claims the corruption involved high profile people such as Finance Minister Malusi Gigaba, Brian Molefe and the controversial Gupta family.
He said it’s clear a commission of inquiry must be set up given the recent disclosures contained in the leaked Gupta emails.
According to Eyewitness News, Malema said the party’s lawyers will send a letter of demand to Zuma that he must retract is application for the review of the report, adding that if the president doesn't withdraw, he must agree that parties can approach the Pretoria High Court to have the hearing brought forward to July.
He said the EFF will approach the court to request an earlier court date, citing that the matter is urgent, should the president not withdraw the application.
Malema has told reporters the party has the leaked Gupta emails and that it’s security department is going through them. Once they’ve gone through all the emails, the party will put together a file to hand in to Parliament with the idea to impeachment the MPs who were involved.
