The national leader of the Economic Freedom Fighters revealed this while addressing journalists at party headquarters in Gauteng last week.
EFF commander-in-chief Julius Malema is not a happy leader…
Malema says while they declared 2017 the year of the branch, they have seen no progress in Mpumalanga.
Mpumalanga is led by Collen Sedibe as chairman and Alfred Skhosana as secretary.
Malema addressed journalists at the party’s headquarters in Braamfontein, Gauteng last week Tuesday.
He said when they declared 2017 as the year of the branch they meant that by December 2017 there should be no EFF branch that is not in good standing.
He told journalists that KZN and Eastern Cape have been making real progress in meeting the goals of the year of the branch and soon they will be convening regional elective conferences, known as Regional People’s Assemblies.
Once the regions have had their elective assemblies, the provinces will then hold an assembly to elect new leadership, Malema explained.
However, he said there has been a lot of “degeneration” in province of Mpumalanga, saying this is “due to lack of leadership”.
“And as a result the EFF officials summoned the Mpumalanga leadership to explain itself,” said Malema.
“In addition, we shall closely be monitoring their developments and if there are no improvements the necessary intervention will be made,” he told journalists.
He said in Parliament they have identified two ‘lazy’ members who do not deliver on their assignments and will fire them very soon.
“They are not adding any value to building the EFF that they represent in Parliament, unless they present a cogent case as to why this must not be so,” he said.
The party in the Mpumalanga province was supposed to have regional elective conferences by 31 July 2017 but in August 2017 said this has been extended to the end of October 2017 as they are busy renewing and forming branches where there are none.
