Some EFF members are apparently in trouble after wreaking havoc on a guest house.
The Daily Maverick reported they had rented the Camps Bay villa for up to R60 000.
EFF members reportedly caused R40 000 worth of damages at a Cape Town guesthouse during their eight-day stay in the days surrounding the State of the Nation Address (SONA).
The publication claims the four-bedroom property is owned by a foreign national.
The journalist who worked on the story, Marianne Thamm, wrote that she had rifled through the trash left by the EFF members when they checked out.
Speaking on Radio 702 on Wednesday morning, Thamm said EFF spokesperson Mbuyiseni Ndlozi had initially told the Daily Maverick he was unable to confirm or account for the villa in question but said there was no need to rent private accommodation as its MPs were accommodated in hotels and flats. This, despite the report saying ticket stubs had been found in the trash with his name on it.
Ndlozi criticised the report’s line of questioning as a “tabloid inquiry masquerading as political and ideological concerns”.
EFF leader Julius Malema dismissed the Daily Maverick’s questions with a short message: “I don’t comment on rubbish.”https://newsoweto.co.za/eff-members-damage-camps-bay-guesthouse-worth-r40000/https://newsoweto.co.za/wp-content/uploads/2019/07/eff-memo.jpghttps://newsoweto.co.za/wp-content/uploads/2019/07/eff-memo-150x150.jpgPolitics
