Communications Minister Stella Ndabeni-Abrahams was charged for breaking lockdown regulations earlier this month.
JOHANNESBURG - The EFF is laying criminal charges against Minister of Communications and Digital Technologies Stella Ndabeni-Abrahams and former MP Mduduzi Manana.
Party spokesperson, Vuyani Pambo, will lay charges at Douglasdale Police Station.
It comes after Ndabeni-Abrahams broke the lockdown regulations by visiting Manana at his house.
President Cyril Ramaphosa placed Ndabeni-Abrahams on special leave for two-months with one being unpaid.
The DA meanwhile says the special leave is the easy way out.
The party says Ramaphosa should send out a strong message to the public by both firing her and laying a criminal complaint against her.
The ANC welcomed her suspension.
