Why is Telkom donating R1 Million to the EFF? Why are tax payers being indirectly forced to fund this far-left political party?

Telkom is funded by the state, therefore, funded by you and me through taxes. Furthermore, the state is run by the ANC, this would mean that the ANC is indirectly using our taxes to fund the EFF. What is going on?

Article published by EWN below, quote: “Telkom and its Ceo Sipho Maseko received a special thanks after it forked out R1 million for the table where Malema was seated.”

Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) leader Julius Malema says the Bosasa scandal has proven how the ANC has sold its soul to racists which is why the red berets are the only political party capable of tackling white monopoly capital.
