Suspended EFF Leader Vows To Take Party To Court


MPUMALANGA: Suspended Mpumalanga EFF secretary Alfred Skhosana has threatened to take the party to court if they expel him, according to reports.

He said the party leader, Julius Malema is not giving him a fair chance to prepare for the disciplinary hearing that is supposed to settle the matter. 

Skhosana was suspended on 25 February 2018 during a meeting at party headquarters. He was charged for “underperformance” by Malema. 

“They sent me a bundle of documents on 14 March 2018, two days before the hearing, and those documents were used as exhibits [evidence] against me in the hearing,” said Skhosana on Thursday this week.

“I did not have time to peruse those documents,” he said.

“I did not even have time to speak to my lawyer and arrange witnesses before the hearing.

“I raised my concern about the time constraint at the hearing and asked for a postponement, but they refused to grant the postponement. If I’m expelled from the EFF, I will accept the decision and leave, but will take the EFF to court because the disciplinary hearing processes were against the law,” Skhosana said.

Asked for comment on the matter.

EFF’s secretary, Godrich Gardee said; “I don’t know what he is talking about. I’m not privileged to comment on anything about him and the disciplinary hearing.”
