Malema: Sars can't stop me or the EFF

Johannesburg - EFF leader Julius Malema said the SA Revenue Service (Sars) cannot stop him or his party from going to Parliament, SABC News reported on Tuesday.

"We are going to Parliament. There is no Sars that can be used to stop us from going to Parliament," he told Economic Freedom Fighters supporters in Mooiplaas, near Pretoria on Monday.

Sars doesn't vote for people to go to Parliament. You are the ones who send people to Parliament if you want us to go to Parliament."


Earlier on Monday, Malema was provisionally sequestrated by the North Gauteng High Court in Pretoria.

Malema and anyone else who did not want the order to be made final had until 26 May to give reasons as to why this should not happen.

His lawyer, Tumi Mokwena said Malema's ambitions to serve in Parliament would be thwarted should a provisional sequestration order against him become final.

He would be allowed to stand as an MP, but with potential complications. Should he be elected, he would lose his seat as MP if the provisional order became final.

The EFF said Malema would remain its presidential candidate in the general elections.
