DA lays charges against ANC for alleged non-payment of UIF contributions

Published on

The DA has confirmed that it is laying a charge against the ANC for allegedly failing to pay UIF contributions to the state, as alleged by staff.

The Democratic Alliance (DA) announced on Tuesday, 7 September 2021, that it has laid a charge with the South African Police Service against the African National Congress (ANC), over its alleged failure to pay the Unemployment Insurance Fund’s (UIF) contributions to the state. The DA stated that this follows a claim by frustrated staff members at Luthuli House who alleged that since 2018, the ANC has been deducting UIF contributions from workers but not paying them over to the government.

The DA further noted that should this be true, it would amount to a criminal offence in terms of the Unemployment Insurance Contributions Act and the Tax Administration Act. The DA also confirmed having written to the Minister of Employment and Labour, Thembelani Thulas Nxesi to clarify on these allegations, and has pressed charges. The party concluded by calling out the ANC for showing complete contempt for the institutions of the state.
