JOHANNESBURG - The EFF will make submissions at the Human Rights Commission inquiry into Alexandra protests.
The inquiry received information that the Gauteng High Court required the presence of EFF leader Julius Malema who was expected to testify.
Malema offered an apology for not coming and has expressed his willingness to be part of this process.
The head of the forensic investigative unit of the City of Johannesburg Shadrack Sibiya is also expected to testify.
The then Gauteng Human Settlements MEC, Uhuru Moiloa, complained to the commission during his testimony, that an opposition party leader had called on citizens to illegally occupy land.
The Human Rights Commission's Buang Jones said the commission is expecting Sibiya to present evidence gathered concerning the Alexandra Renewal Project.
“For the first time we will be able to hear who are these people who squandered or misused the funds that were meant to redevelop Alexandra,” Jones said.
