Kimberley - The EFF has disputed owing money to some of the taxi drivers who transported supporters from all over the Northern Cape to the party’s provincial manifesto launch in Kuruman, to see their commander-in-chief Julius Malema, last month.
The taxi drivers said that they were owed over R20 000 and that they were being sent from pillar to post to try and collect the money.
EFF provincial spokesperson Obakeng Lechuti said that the party was aware of taxi owners who claimed they had not received payments.
“As the EFF, we spoke to them regarding the services they provided to the organisation on the day of the rally. We have been asking them to come forward so that we can identify them and arrive at an agreement,” said Lechuti on Tuesday.
He explained that service providers were requested to provide evidence of rendering transport services.
