Economic Freedom Fighter, EFF has blasted ANC for copying its party levy concept.
The party came for ANC after ANC veteran advised the party to adopt EFF’s concept of making party deployees surrender half their salaries to the party.
The EFF earlier ordered its Councillors to hand in half their salaries for the next three months in order for the party to recover money spent during the local government elections.
The party leader Julius Malema ordered that those who refuse to hand in theirs were stealing from the organisation and would be dealt with decisively.
At the time, Malema defended the stance saying it’s a necessary risk that the EFF was taking to avoid a ‘white capital monopoly to come and sponsor then start to tell you what to do.’
Similarly, in an article which dealt with what the ruling party must do to regain its past glory for good, ANC vetran Nceba Faku suggested that ANC deployees contribute half their salaries to the organisation
Faku, who is the former Executive Mayor of the Nelson Mandela Metropolitan Municipality in Port Elizabeth also suggested that the party look into other causes of its failure.
He pointed out that the party has to come up with other measures needed to turn things around for the party’s good as Zuma was not the ANC’s only “sin”
Dismayed by this, the EFF’s secretary-general Godrich Gardee took to Twitter to blast the ruling party calling it a copycat for borrowing his party’s policy.
He mocks the ANC for copying the EFF which was called names when they pioneered the party levy.
Meanwhile, the EFF’s 826 councillors needed to repay the party for campaigning for the elections and the party spokes person in Mpumalanga Collen Sedibe said some of his party’s newly elected councillors had already failed to pay half of their new salaries to the party.
