- The Economic Freedom Fighters are very upset about unfinished roads in Limpopo
- According to the EFF, the company that was meant to build the roads is getting away with not doing so because it is 'white-owned'
- This comes after the EFF's leader, Julius Malema, was linked to a construction company built roads that are falling apart
The EFF in Limpopo says the Road Agency Limpopo showed favouritism towards a 'white-owned' company who failed to complete an important road Meropa Casino.
For two weeks now, the EFF has been barricading the N1 highway in the area with cars and bakkies.
The Citizen reports that the EFF is led by Jossey Buthane, and he says the road is very important for people who will travel between Limpopo and Johannesburg in the festive season.
We are scared we may lose the lives of these people on this road because it is not complete.
According to the EFF, if the owner of the company was black, the company would have been blacklisted.
But just because it’s a white-owned company, RAL let the company get away with murder.
RAL's chief executive officer, Maselagany Matji, says the project has been halted because the service provider faces financial problems.
We have agreed in principle that the construction work on the project would resume by the latest, end of February next year
This comes after a report from 2017 linked EFF leader, Julius Malema, to a company who built roads in Limpopo which has since fallen apart.
Briefly.co.za reported that photos of the sinkholes resurfaced on social media and social media users had mixed reactions.
