The party has slammed a fake news website for reports that their CIC died in a car accident.
In a statement on Saturday, EFF spokesperson Mbuyiseni Ndlozi said “the news reported on the fake news website Global News, that the CIC’s family has been involved in a car accident are fake”.
“We would like to reiterate categorically that CIC’s family is safe and enjoying the Easter weekend in peace.
“We encourage all people to reject Global News (www.globalnews360.com) website as a fake news site that should never be trusted or relied on for genuine news.”
The website had reported that Malema and his wife and seven-month-old son died in an accident in Sandton after clipping the rear of a tipper truck.
According to Sunday Sun, sources in the EFF believe such reports are created to “destabilise” their party.
One EFF member told the tabloid “only God knows [Malema’s] lifespan”.
