The Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) says it condemns the use of the Expanded Public Work Programme (EPWP) to empower ANC volunteers towards the 2024 general elections.

The Party says Premier Panyaza Lesufi has launched the bogus Bontle ke Botho Gauteng‘s clean and Green Campaign program which will see 6000 people registered in the government’s payroll.

Gauteng EFF Chairperson Nkuleko Dunga said the process is irregular and illegal in that there was no proper recruitment process.

In fact, it is ANC volunteers that are mobilized and empowered for electioneering and claiming non-existent victories using state resources”

The red berets said after launching this program, Premier Lesufi has ordered municipalities to absorb these ANC volunteers in their workforce. “ The City of Ekhurhuleni is expected to absorb 1600 recruits in complete disregard of the Human Resources process and procedures of the municipality”.
