KwaZulu-Natal EFF MPs Faces Firing Following Failure To Organize Transport For Anniversary Celebration

The political future of two EFF MPs in KwaZulu-Natal hangs in balance after they were among the more than 400 public representatives barred from attending the party’s 10th-anniversary celebration at FNB Stadium over the weekend.

Vusi Khoza, former provincial chairperson and national command team member, and Slindile Luthuli were among the four parliamentarians who had to watch the festivities on television as they failed to provide buses for the event.

The list of banned representatives was released by the EFF on Friday. According to the EFF’s instructions, each MP was required to arrange for 20 buses, covering the costs from their own pockets.

Provincial legislature members were expected to organize 10 buses each, while councillors were responsible for funding their own buses.The impact of this decision appears to be most significant in KwaZulu-Natal, with more than 20 public representatives failing to meet the party’s requirements.

Notable names on the list include former deputy mayor of Zululand District Municipality, Thulani Ndlovu, who lost his position after the EFF terminated its governing arrangement with the IFP in the municipalities.

The EFF has five MPs from KwaZulu-Natal, namely Hlengiwe Mkhaliphi, the party’s secretary-general Marshall Dlamini, Sibongile Khawula, as well as Vusi Khoza and Slindile Luthuli.

The party insists that representatives had ample time, a six-month period, to raise funds and organize buses for the anniversary celebration.

Vusi Khoza, who lost the provincial leadership at a conference last year, saw his political career revived when he was transferred to Cape Town to take up an MP seat after losing to his deputy chairperson, Mongezi Twala.

Responding to the situation, Khoza mentioned the financial impossibility of paying for 20 buses alone, given the costs ranging from R36,000 to R40,000 per bus for travel from KwaZulu-Natal to Gauteng.
