Mpume Mbono has been in police custody since he was charged with public violence and assault arising from an incident at St Michaels beach on December 27.

The EFF in the Ugu region said division in the party is more evident now that some within the organisation rejoice every time the party’s secretary is not given bail and remains in police custody.

Ugu EFF secretary Mpume Mbono, who is facing charges of public violence and assault, was arrested on December 27 at St Michael’s beach when the party visited South Coast beaches after an incident that was widely publicised on social media, showing how lifesavers were allegedly assaulted during an altercation at Manaba beach.

A member of the EFF in Ugu who wished to remain anonymous told The Witness that some leaders of the EFF in Ugu don’t want Mbono to come back as the party’s secretary.
