The Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) have condemned the kidnapping of their Head of Presidency, Vuyani Pambo.
On Monday night, June 27, Pambo was allegedly kidnapped by three armed men who demanded money outside his mother’s house.
According to the EFF, the individuals were three well-built men wearing masks who took Pambo’s vehicle in a quiet and unsuspecting neighborhood.
The armed men are said to have fled with Pambo’s personal belongings, which included his passport, identity document, organizational material, and other valuables. They then allegedly abandoned the car.
“It is clear through the manner in which the operation was conducted, that it was premeditated, with the intention of intimidation and securing of certain valuable documents and information.”
The EFF expressed gratitude that Pambo was not injured during the incident and that his child and mother were unharmed. According to the party, the incident demonstrates that no one is immune to criminal activity in South Africa.

Following their Youth Day rally in Vhembe, Limpopo, the EFF recently made bold claims. According to the Red Berets, three armed men, whom they believe to be government operatives, entered the crowd with the intent to cause ‘deadly harm.’
Officials from the EFF are taking it all very seriously. There is genuine concern that the suspects targeted leaders who were present at the event, including Julius Malema and Mbuyiseni Ndlozi.
The police have opened an investigation, and the far-left party says it is ‘looking forward’ to following the developments. Surprisingly, the EFF is also adamant that the men who entered the rally with rifles were sent in a political capacity by the State Security Agency (SSA).
