Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) members marched to Ntabanyoni Estate in Badplass, Mpumalanga, today to demand the reinstatement of six dismissed workers.
Led by the party’s provincial chairperson, Collen Sedibe, the members believe the dismissal of the workers was unfair. The dismissed workers apparently complained of abuse and racism.
Sedibe said: We submitted the memorandum to the farm and we have given them a period of seven days to respond to the memorandum we gave them. We will then think of what action to take should the day given to them pass before they respond.”
He said they expect the management to pay workers a minimum wage of R4500 per month.
But speaking to African Times, Rall dismissed the allegations: “Nothing they are saying is true. it is just pure speculation, and I cannot say anything about the dismissal because the matter has been referred to the CCMA and it is not settled yet. But I will respond to the memorandum they submitted earlier today.”
