Economic Freedom Fighters leader Julius Malema has opened a criminal case in Cape Town after finding that his parliamentary office had been broken into this morning. 

According to a statement released by EFF spokesperson Mbuyiseni Ndlozi, documents containing Malema’s travel and security information were removed from the office. 

According to the statement, the party suspects that the robbery was an inside job. 

“The EFF hopes and believes that the South African Police Service and Parliamentary Protection Services will thoroughly and independently investigate the burglary if neither of them was involved in the act.” 

The EFF condemned and expressed “utter disgust” over what it called “the reality that there is growing securitisation” – in other words that it falls under the state security department – of Parliament and all its operations. 

The EFF believed that the “securitisation” was implemented by David Mahlobo, state security minister, “who infamously jammed the network during the 2015 state of the nation address”. 

Ndlozi was not immediately available for further comment.
