- The EFF leader claims the party is in possession of the identity of the person who initiated the assassination
Economic Freedom Fighters boss Julius Malema claims that leadership in the party has evidence of a plan to 'off' Floyd Shivambu.
Commenting on the matter during a media briefing, Malema says they have managed to identify the person behind the plan:
"There is an intelligence report by crime intelligence which confirms that Floyd Shivambu is the subject of a target and they've even identified the person who has procured the killing of Floyd Shivambu."
Malema blasted the intelligence services, along with Police Minister Bheki Cele, for failing to act on their information:
"Till today, the (police) minister has got the report, till today nothing has happened. There is a price tag on Floyd's head. The assassin went to Floyd. We reported the matter to the minister, crime intelligence has investigated, it is confirmed and they even know the person."
Without wanting to reveal too much, Malema claimed the individual owns hotels in KwaZulu-Natal, an Indian who allegedly issued the instruction for the deputy president's attempted murder, reports News24.
