EFF councillors will have to cough up 50% of salaries for party levies 16:21 The party said on Monday it would be strictly enforcing the party levy because it did not want to be captured by white monopoly capital. EFF president Julius Malema said it was important for all members serving in Parliament‚ legislatures and councils to pay monthly levies. "The party levy is going to help EFF not to be captured by private donors‚" he said. He said the 826 elected EFF councillors were all expected to pay 50% of their salaries for three months. The EFF’s tithe on MPs is 15% - and it says expense claims are not welcomed - while the DA takes 2% of its MPs’ earnings. As for the ANC‚ it’s not telling.
