Johannesburg – The EFF on Sunday expressed its disappointment and concern about a "bogus media briefing" held in Durban.

EFF acting national spokesperson, Fana Mokoena, said the briefing was held by former leaders of the party in KwaZulu-Natal and allegedly attended by fewer than 20 people.

"It is not necessary to mention from the outset that this bogus press conference was outside the mandate of the organisation and is therefore not recognised by the EFF, a policy conference at which no policy was discussed," Mokoena said in a statement.

This came just days after the party decided to dissolve its leadership structures in KwaZulu-Natal and the Eastern Cape in the hopes of electing new people in an attempt to improve its performance during the 2019 national elections.

These would be replaced by interim structures which would rebuild branches and convene regional assemblies.

Following the "bogus" briefing in eThekwini, the party said that ill-disciplined members should not expect a response from the EFF.

"It must be stated categorically that the EFF is not a home of position mongers and we will not tolerate and support such a culture," Mokoena said.

He warned that members who acted outside the party's culture, structures, codes and processes would be expelled.
