Video: EFF member confronts business owner over alleged non-payment

Video footage showing a heated confrontation between an EFF (Economic Freedom Fighters) member and a business over, over the alleged non-payment of employees, has been shared by party leader Julius Malema.
The fiery exchange, which allegedly took place at a Debonairs pizzeria in Tshwane, was spearheaded by EFF member Mpho Moses Morolane, who is well-known for defending the rights of workers in a confrontational fashion.
The video shows Morolane, who is accompanied by an associate, calling on workers to testify on the issue of non-payment. The alleged business owner attempts to explain the situation as a misunderstanding, but things get heated when he reprimands Morolane on his heavy-handed approach.
The workers, summoned by Morolane, raise their hands when asked if non-consensual deductions had been made on their pay. An irate Morolane then, once more, takes the owner to task, demanding that he pay the workers what they are owed.

Mpho Moses Morolane is the former president of the EFF’s Student Command and has dedicated his time at the party to fighting for workers’ rights. During his tenure as president, Morolane was instrumental in the insourcing of security guards, cleaners and catering staff at UNISA and the University of Pretoria.
Morolane, who has allegedly formed his own worker’s union in association with the EFF, shot to infamy earlier in the year when video footage of a fiery employment debate involving construction workers surfaced on social media.
In similar style to the video footage obtained during the recent Debonairs incident, Morolane engages in a heated debate with white foreman and bosses gathered in the construction yard. The exchange quickly spirals out of control when Morolane is reprimanded by senior employees who are facilitating the meeting. An incensed Morolane can be heard shouting:
“We are representing the workers. We are not scared of you. You don’t pay people enough. You pay them R1900 a month – what is that? How much are you earning?”
