- Former members of the Economic Freedom Fighters accuse leader Julius Malema and Deputy President Floyd Shivambu of corruption
- The two leaders are also accused of abusing women within the party
- The EFF says these accusations are untrue
A lot of accusations are being thrown at the EFF leadership, including sexism and corruption.
A group of people who say they are former EFF members from the John Taolo Gaetsewe district made it clear how they feel about the political party.
The group quit as members on Thursday, according to a report by The Citizen. They accused Julius Malema and Floyd Shivambu of corruption on their way out.
Furthermore, the group claims that the leaders of the EFF take advantage of women in the party.
Gabasale Mary Tongwane stated that she was beaten up by men who later became councillors in the party. She added that she was removed from her position without the proper steps being taken. There was a dispute about her taking leave.
Olebogeng Leserwane shared a media statement on social media, outlining accusations against the EFF and its leaders.
Leserwane claimed that the EFF is rotten with power-hungry corruption and greed. He accused Malema and Shivambu of using the party's money to buy themselves flashy cars.
The former EFF member also said the two leaders exchanged girlfriends in the party and abuse and exploit women.
Leserwane further accused Malema and Shivambu of taking 10% of party members' salaries as levies to the EFF. However, he said they cannot account for this money - almost R3 million every month.
The EFF rejected the accusations as rubbish and lies.
