A recent report claimed that Floyd Shivambu had gone to the same 'Stellenbosch mafia' the EFF detests to ask for financial funding. The news divided social media users, with EFF supporters adamant that, even if this turned out to be true, their Deputy President had done nothing wrong.
Floyd Shivambu, Deputy President of the Economic Freedom Fighters, was accused by a recent report of approaching the 'Stellenbosch mafia' for help.
Briefly.co.za reported earlier today that Shivambu had reportedly asked the men his party had on numerous occasions condemned in an attempt to fund business opportunities.
While the EFF and Shivambu have yet to respond to the allegations, the party's loyal supporters were quick to point out that there was nothing illegal about the situation, even if it was true.
While what the EFF supporters are claiming is technically true, nothing illegal transpired, a person cannot help but wonder how the party that arguably coined the phrase 'White Monopoly Capital' in reference to the likes of Johan Ruppert could stomach asking their rivals for funding.
This was pointed out by numerous South Africans who had commented on the situation. Nevertheless, EFF loyalists remained unshaken.

Here are some of the comments on Floyd Shivambu's alleged hustle:
