Johannesburg - EFF MP Khanyisile Tshabalala on Tuesday claimed there was gross mismanagement of the EFF's funds and fingered the party's president and deputy president as the main culprits.

"We have seen evidence of financial mismanagement of great proportions," she told reporters in Sandton, Johannesburg.

"Julius Malema and Floyd [Shivambu] don't contribute to the EFF party, but take away from it."

She claimed that Malema and Shivambu were the only two people who knew how party funding was being spent.

"All matters of funding, procurements... are centralised in the hands of the president and deputy president."

This was done in "great secrecy".

She added that Malema and Shivambu were the only two EFF members who did not pay 10% of their salaries to the party.

Tshabalala referred to a Golf 6 which was registered privately, instead of in the name of the party.

She said the owner of the company was linked to Malema and that the company's address was Malema's.

"The car is being registered in the name of the EFF. Why after the fact? Why could it not be registered in the name of the EFF when it was bought?"

She claimed that VIPs were flown to Malema's wedding in multiple helicopters.

"A leader who steals from the poor to feed his lifestyle cannot be a revolutionary," she said.
