- A letter has been making rounds that was allegedly sent from prominent EFF members to their leader, Julius Malema
- According to the letter, these members confront Malema about money irregularly given to the EFF by VBS Mutual Bank
- The letter wants the money paid back and any members involved in the corruption kicked out
An enigmatic letter has been circulating claiming to be from two prominent Economic Freedom Fighters who confront their leader Julius Malema.
The mysterious letter was forwarded to the press and has since been shared on social media.
In this letter, claiming to be from Leigh-Ann Mathys and Hlengiwe Hlophe-Maxon, Malema is confronted about allegations that the EFF received money from VBS Mutual Bank.
The letter was sent by an anonymous source, according to a report by The Citizen.
Reports allegedly indicate that the EFF was given R1.3 million from the now-failing bank. This comes at the same time as Deputy Chief Floyd Shivambu's brother stands accused of benefiting from the looting of the bank as well.
Briefly.co.za reported that Brian Shivambu received R16 million from the bank, along with 26 other companies and people. It is not clear yet exactly what Brian was given the money for.
The letter apparently remembers how the EFF has always stood up against corruption very vocally.
Further, the letter states that those involved in corruption should be criminally charged and any money given to the EFF must be paid back immediately.
Any members of the political party that benefitted from the corrupt looting must be expelled.
The EFF has not yet publicly addressed the allegations.
