Midvaal Mayor Bongani Baloyi

The Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) party has apparently branched out into real estate, selling land at only R15 a pop.

Midvaal Mayor Bongani Baloyi claims the EFF is illegally selling private land in the area at rock-bottom prices.

He said the owners of the land are now trying to obtain an urgent interdict against the illegal occupation.

“Even today [Saturday] we had close to a thousand people there to register,” he told eNCA.

Baloyi’s been in hiding after service delivery protests erupted last week.

He believes his life is in danger.

The mayor spoke to eNCA on Saturday night from a secret location.

The EFF didn’t respond to the claims.
