Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) leader Julius Malema is adamant that Police Minister Bheki Cele called the party’s Secretary General Marshall Dlamini to let him know about an alleged assassination plot.

On Tuesday, 7 February, the EFF said it received a reliable intelligence report from the South African Police Service (SAPS) that senior Inkatha Freedom Party (IFP) members are plotting to assassinate Dlamini. SAPS denied any knowledge of this.


Responding to the allegations, the IFP accused the EFF of misinformation.

IFP spokesperson Mkhuleko Hlengwa said the EFF’s delusions of grandeur have come full circle in the face of a brewing internal revolt emanating from its decision to restore the ANC into power.
