A White Lady And Former, EFF Member, Helen Keller Exposes The People Funding The EFF

Helen Keller said that she knows how the EFF is being funded because she spent sometime in the political party before leaving. She came out to clarify about the people funding the EFF, as people keep clamouring that they want to know about EFF funders. Of course, it is no longer a secret that foremost chieftains of the Economic Freedom Fighters political party adorn themselves in costly designers, and they subsequently make heavy donations towards charities. Furthermore, the party never go broke, leading many people in suspense regarding the Party's source of income and funding. Recall that before now, many people believe that the EFF is being funded from the proceeds from the infamous VBS loot. They argue that the EFF may have gotten some cash through Brian Shivambu who was fingered in the VBS saga. A Daily Maverick Journalist, Pauli Van Wyk wrote extensively on this issue in several series.

This white lady, Helen Keller, although she is not a member of the Economic Freedom Fighters political party any more said that the party is not funded by outsiders or criminals, they sponsor themselves. This is meant to silence the critics of the Economic Freedom Fighters political party, who think that some people benefiting from the EFF that are funding the party. She gave a vivid account of how the EFF make their money, declaring that everything is based on self sponsorship. She wrote on her Twitter handle, “TG @OmphileMaotwe did a good job explaining #EFF funding. From my time at #EFF I recall how MPs & MPLs had a % deducted from their salaries to help fund the party

AND ordinary members helped from their pockets. This is commendable”. Although she is no longer a member of the EFF, the lady is vigorously defending the party, saying that the organization is quite commendable, saying that she wish other parties can emulate such.

The problem started when it was revealed that the people sponsoring ActionSA are the same set of people who are also sponsoring the Democratic Alliance, and many ActionSA voters said that they were not even aware until the party leadership decided to publish the list of their funders. This led to many EFF members making jest of ActionSA voters. In response, ActionSA members asked the EFF to publish their donors if they have nothing to hide. Julius Malema earlier said that the members sponsor the party, and now, Helen Keller, a former member, has come out to confirm the claim. This invariably means that the EFF founder and CIC, Julius Malema have been right all along.
