“Yes, it is true, we confirm as the Economic Freedom Fighters that Mandisa Mashego has resigned at the legislature of Gauteng,” said EFF Spokesperson.

Maintained that they have therefore put Itani Mukwevho as the party leader at the legislature of Gauteng.

Rumours of Mashego’s imminent departure have been making rounds since the beginning of the year but the EFF has maintained that she was still the leader.

The party, through its spokesperson Vuyani Pambo, has maintained that Mashego’s absence from party activities was due to her ill health and that she had sent them a doctor’s note.

It allegedly alluded that Mashego’s decision to contest EFF leader Julius Malema’s ally, Marshall Dlamini, for the position of secretary-general had pitted her against the party’s top leadership.

It had been widely reported that Malema had earmarked the position for Dlamini.
