Two more EFF MPs suspended
Mpho Ramakatsa & Lucky Twala, both aligned to Andile Mngxitama's faction, have been suspended.
JOHANNESBURG - The Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) has confirmed it has suspended two more Members of Parliament (MPs) and founding members of the party in the latest development in the party's internal rebellion.
Mpho Ramakatsa and Lucky Twala, who are both aligned to factions loyal to Andile Mngxitama, received their notices of suspension this week.
It's understood that disciplinary action is being taken after the pair boycotted the State of the Nation Address (Sona) on Thursday last week, though the party would not confirm this on record.
EFF spokesman Mbuyiseni Ndlozi says, "We hope that an internal process will be given a chance, both by the concerned fighters and also by the media to allow us to deal with these matters internally."
The EFF also placed MP Khanyisile Litchfield-Tshabalala on suspension with Mngxitama, in what it described as a corrective measure.
The two MPs received letters of temporary suspension late on Monday night and Eyewitness News understands the matter relates to bringing the party into disrepute and misrepresenting it, among a host of other charges.
