Watch| EFF Hires Private Investigators To Probe Hillary Gardee’s Murder
The Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) have launched their own investigation into Hillary Gardee’s death.
Private investigators were hired by the red berets to look into the murder of Gardee, the daughter of the party’s former secretary-general, Godrich Gardee. Hillary’s body was discovered four days after she went missing in the Ehlanzeni District outside Mbombela.

The 28-year-old was shot in the back of the head. Three suspects, including a former ANC member, have been arrested in connection with Gardee’s murder and have already appeared in Nelspruit Magistrate’s Court.
They will remain behind bars until at least 9 June when they return to court. During a press conference at the party’s Johannesburg headquarters on Monday, EFF leader Julius Malema said the criminals who murdered Gardee must be held accountable and imprisoned indefinitely.
“We as the EFF are actively involved in seeking justice for Hillary Gardee, and caution the police service and political leaders to not play dirty, dangerous and opportunistic political games on a sensitive case of murder.
“The police must do everything in its power and must utilise the most advanced forms of investigations to find out what happened and who did what on the disappearance and murder of Hillary Gardee. We assure her that we will find the murderers and will make sure that they are jailed forever,” Malema said.

Malema also urged men to refrain from killing and harassing women and children. “The levels and extent of gender-based violence and violence in general in South Africa is unacceptable. Year on year, for the past five years or more, South Africa has more than 20,000 murder cases. Despite this crisis, murderers are easily given bail by South Africa’s criminal justice system which is evidently corrupted, particularly at the magistrate’s level.”
According to Malema, South Africa’s criminal syndicates have effectively captured courts and are acting freely because they know there will be no consequences.
