CR17 election payments, two EFF MP's resign

Two of the Red Brigade’s MPs decided to resign, saving the party the trouble of holding disciplinary hearings. Tebogo Mokwele and Nkasigang Mokgosi resigned after it became known that they had received payments from the Cyril Ramaphosa election bank account, known as the CR17 funds.

Tebogo Mokwele admitted to receiving money from Cyril Ramaphosa at the death of a loved one, saying it was R80,000 paid to her between 2017 and this year. However, she has indicated that the ANC is still regarded as the enemy of the state, and apparently remains loyal to the EFF.

However, the payments to EFF members raise questions about the action and the suspicion exists that the Public Protector may begin to scratch into the president’s actions again.

Tebogo Mokwele also received R80,000, apparently paid from the CR17 fund, which is supposed to be used for the Ramaphosa election campaign.
