The Democratic Alliance (DA) has written to Police Minister Bheki Cele and IEC Chairperson Glen Mashinini, requesting that a joint audit of what the ideological group claims "appears, by all accounts, to be intrusive illicit crusading by the EFF" be halted.
After the EFF crusaded as usual on Sunday, ignoring the lockdown instructions, DA chief whip Natasha Mazzone highlighted the issue.
"The EFF has proved that it has no respect for law and order, and that it is not above using its own allies as bait during this pandemic, as evidenced by their lobbying event today. According to the new level 2 lockdown criteria, the maximum number of individuals who can attend an open air gathering is 500. The photographs and videos from today's EFF event show that over 500 people attended "According to Mazzone.
"In this way, the EFF's declaration delivery is an illegal social occasion, and their presentation today is comparable to illegal crusading. The IEC must make the correct judgment and hold the EFCF accountable for its activities. The decisions' freedom and dignity are undermined by this illegal event occurring throughout the mission's time frame. In addition, the EFF's activities have positioned them for possible deregistration as an ideological organisation "she expressed herself.
She claimed that all South Africans were forced to live by the ANC's "silly lockdown rules," and that "there can't be one set of regulations for ordinary citizens and another one for the EFF."
"Clergyman Cele gleefully used water cannons at beneficiaries and helpless South Africans in an SASSA line, but he lacks the same zeal when it comes to handling Julius Malema, his comrade. Where have all the water cannons vanished to these days? Or is Cele in Malema's pocket, ready to intervene in the EFF's flagrant disregard for the law? "According to Mazzone.
