Six expelled “Fighters” lost a fight in court to protect their salaries

The South Gauteng High Court has dismissed with costs a case by six expelled Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) to stop Independent Electoral Commission (IEC) removing them from Mogale City Municipality.

EFF spokesperson Mbuyiseni Ndlozi said in a statement on Thursday, the leadership decided to sack six of its nine councillors after they defied the party’s decision and voted with the ANC during the municipality’s budget on July1 this year.

“We welcome this dismissal particularly because these six councillors’ argument as to why they must not be removed was that they would loose their salaries. In essence, they did not go to court to defend their membership in the EFF, but the salaries they earn from being councillors. This proves our long-held suspicion that they are driven by money and not service to our revolution and the people,” said Ndlozi.

As fighters in all the corners of our ranks, said Ndlozi we must isolate careectivists who come in our midst, masquerading as revolutionaries, when actually, they were here to earn salaries.

“EFF is not an employment agency and shall never bend to the reactionary, narcissistic and destructive tendency of the careectivists who use the people’s revolution to advance their personal financial statuses,” said Ndlozi.

Ndlozi said the six were joining the long line of other careectivists like Ramakatsa, Mngxitama and Tshabalala who have still to comply with the court order to pay EFF for futile cases in which they were defending salaries.
