Malema’s gardener finally paid

2012-04-19 14:33

The gardener who worked for suspended ANC Youth League leader Julius Malema said he was finally paid money owed to him.

Joseph Mabuza told Eyewitness News that Malema had paid him and that he considered the matter closed today.

Earlier today Mabuza, who worked for Malema on Sundays, was quoted as saying he had not been paid for February and last month and was owed R1 200.

“I just wish Julius pays me. I borrowed money from people for my transport. I also took a lot of things on credit,” he told The Star newspaper.

The gardener, who lives in Tembisa and works during the week for another employer, claims he spent R26 on transport every Sunday to work at Malema’s house.

Malema denied the claim of not paying wages.

“He has failed to report for work for a long time and now he accuses me of owing him money. If I do, he must come and collect his money. I will wait for him,” Malema told the daily newspaper.

Mabuza said he had worked for Malema for more than four years.
