A second disgruntled EFF MP has accused party leader Julius Malema of abusing the party's funds for his own personal gain. However, South Africa seems relatively unfazed by the allegations, with EFF supporters adamant that the MPs have their own reasons for pointing fingers.
In an angry resignation letter, Zolile Xalisa, an EFF MP, accused his leader Julius Malema of using the party to fund his lifestyle.
Briefly.co.za reported yesterday that for the second time an EFF Member of Parliament had accused their CIC of misusing the party's income from MPs and even Parliament itself.
Mzansi seemed relatively nonchalant over the news, pointing out that the disgruntled MP had failed to make the Parliament candidates list for the EFF, which could have incited him to levy the accusations.
Thembinkosi Rawula, another bitter former MP, had made similar accusations after he too had failed to make the candidates list. Following Rawula's resignation from the party, Malema announced that he would be suing the MP.
There had been a few responses that believed the allegations had some truth to them, considering this was the second MP who has made similar claims.
However, the majority of the reactions had come from loyal EFF supporters, who were adamant that the news would not deter them from placing their 'X' next to the party come May.
Here are just a few reactions from South Africans:
