Morning clouds. Mild.
EFF deputy leader Floyd Shivambu has to await another 10 weeks to hear whether he will be prosecuted for an alleged assault on a photographer in Parliament in 2018.
The EFF has a new guard. While Julius Malema retained his position as commander-in-chief and Floyd Shivambu remained his deputy, everyone else who previously served with the two got the chop.
The Daily Maverick has vowed to continue to report on EFF People's Assembly despite the publication being denied media accreditation to the event.
The EFF hosts its second elective conference, known as the national people's assembly, from December 13 to 16. We take a look at what people can expect over the course of the next few days.
A smooth start is a sign of things to come, at least according to EFF members who are attending the party's second elective conference at Nasrec.
After the ANC reclaimed the Johannesburg metro, the EFF accused the DA of participating in the re-establishment of what it calls a "corrupt government".
The EFF that comes out of the elective conference will most likely no longer have a place for Godrich Gardee and Dali Mpofu, who seem to be indifferent towards defending their fellow leaders on allegations of impropriety, writes Ralph Mathekga.
The DA will report EFF chief whip Floyd Shivambu to Parliament's ethics committee after allegations that money from a slush fund was used to pay for his wedding in 2017.
EFF deputy leader Floyd Shivambu has conceded that money from the now collapsed VBS Mutual Bank was used to fund his high-end Range Rover Sport, but insists that the money is clean, according to a report.
EFF deputy president Floyd Shivambu says he has no relationship with one of South Africa's richest men, Johann Rupert.
In the end, there is a new script that was written for the EFF in Nasrec, including its concern with "big issues" such as building a united Africa. I hear this is an agenda, the pursuit of which, will upset forces that would seek to remove Mr Malema from the face of the earth, writes Ralph Mathekga.
The EFF will on Sunday elect 35 additional members to form the party's central command team, who will serve as its highest decision-making structure in between conferences.
The EFF says it is unapologetic about banning the Daily Maverick from covering its elective conference, and that the South African National Editors' Forum can go ahead and write to Parliament should it wish to.
The EFF has spent well over R32m on its second elective conference, the national people's assembly, giving its delegates VIP treatment, treasurer general Leigh-Ann Mathys has told journalists.
The EFF's second elective conference, known as the national people's assembly, is expected to kick off at Nasrec in Johannesburg.
EFF deputy leader Floyd Shivambu is expected to appear in the Cape Town Magistrate's Court next week for allegedly attacking a journalist in the Parliamentary precinct last year.
EFF deputy leader Floyd Shivambu was the directing hand behind two companies managed by his brother, using money stolen from the now collapsed VBS Mutual Bank to fund his lifestyle, according to a report.
Brian Shivambu, the brother of EFF deputy president Floyd Shivambu, has been ordered to pay VBS Mutual Bank's liquidator's legal costs in a case against Brian Shivambu's company, according to a report.
The EFF leader’s brother has had an astonishing reversal of fortunes. Early this year he could afford no more than R5 000 per month to pay his enormous VBS debt. Last month he suddenly had R1m and this week he had another R2m to throw at the problem. Where he got it, no one knows.
EFF leader Julius Malema has claimed that the party leadership has "hardcore evidence" that there is a plan to assassinate the deputy president of the party, Floyd Shivambu.
