It was on Monday when the African National Congress members were gathered at Church Square in Pretoria central, South Africa.
The reason for gathering was to attend the launch of their 2021 local government elections manifesto. Local government elections is set to take place on the 1st of November 2021.
The venue for this event comes after the Economic Freedom Fighters leadership has called on government to remove Paul Kruger statue.
Dr Mbuyiseni Ndlozi criticized the African National Congress members who were attending manifesto event.
Dr Mbuyiseni shared that, "A bunch of Com-tsotsis gathered under the statue shadow of the white supremacist colonial warlord, genocidalist & illiterate Paul Kruger. Under his cold murderous shadow they sang #DieStem reaffirming their true image & promise: to keep black people kneeling at Paul Kruger’s feet".
This clearly shows that he's not happy with the venue African National Congress choose and he's not appreciating the presence of Paul Kruger statue in any public.
