The Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) has labeled a report by Sowetan titled: Sheriff ordered to freeze EFF’s bank account after researcher’s dismissal as fake after the paper has reported about the party leadership account being frozen.
According to the Sowetan report the EFF account linked to the party leader Julius Malema has being frozen by the bank after the Johannesburg Labour Court order.
This after the party failed to pay a former employee who was dismissed from work two years ago but won a case against his dismissal.
The EFF’s Treasury General Leigh Mathys has dismissed the report:
Our account is NOT frozen and NEVER had been! And neither has any of our accounts been frozen! Check with us before writing esp if front pg https://t.co/7en8AIk5Jq
