OPINION | Fikile Mbalula Says ANC Open To Talks With EFF About Land Expropriation


ANC head of races Fikile Mbalula says they can start a discussion shorewards seizure with the EFF

Mbalula said concerning land seizure both the ANC and EFF agree on a fundamental level, but to the extent land custodianship, which the EFF needs, they clashed. 

Mbalula said the EFF needs the nationalization of land and it isn't what they, the ANC, are examining when they talk about land seizure without pay. 

"We stand out from them on that, we are stuck, and we are discussing with them on that," Mbalula told a transmission channel. 

Mbalula said ActionSA didn't go to the party since its main Herman Mashaba made it clear from the start that he would have rather not work with the ANC. 

He said parties hold on for results then, pick after the results and a while later design fantastic partnerships. He said it was too early. 

The ANC also had union visits with the EFF. He said they were not dazed by the EFF saying that its boss Julius Malema has explained that he wants to demolish the ANC. 

"I don't know the first thing why he consumed his involvement in us, we figured we could strike a plan since we and the EFF alone would get the metros. We didn't get to that discussion and the best dilemma the EFF is defying is to legitimize their philosophical position, not the substitute that President Cyril Ramaphosa and DA government board head Helen Zille had a strange simultaneousness with. A philosophical gathering can't take a decision dependent on secret plans," Mbalula said. 

He said accepting that one looked at the numbers, in Johannesburg in the event that the EFF pulled out, the ANC would have gone quite far and won against the DA. Mbalula said on the off chance that Mashaba felt he expected to become metro executive with close to no assistance from the DA and the EFF, the ANC would have gone through. 

Mbalula said when they reasoned that they wanted to challenge, they understood that they intended to give their votes to the DA. 

"Regardless, they (EFF) are uncommonly firm on the issue of land. I like it, but they are not firm on their way of thinking standard which they portray to be. Effectively they give the DA their vote, but they will not at any point go to Zille and say they need land seizure, all that they will do is to endeavor unlawful land assaults in Johannesburg, yet the DA will not at any point agree with that," said Mbalula. 

He further said: "Yet the ANC can start a discussion (land seizure) with the EFF anyway they have finished up they would prefer not to banter with us. It's their political choice, there's no compelling reason to zero in on characters, we put forth a fair attempt to interface with them". 

Mbalula said when they thought the EFF was pushing toward a way where they figured they could consider to be each other, they (EFF) set assumptions for them. He said they tended to those solicitations and the EFF denied the ANC's response, saying it was questionable and sweeping, and that they (ANC) don't submit. 

"A piece of the things they were mentioning like a state bank, we are pushing forward with that, drug state association, we are pushing forward with that, concerning land seizure we agree on a key level with them, but to the extent land custodianship, they are talking about nationalization of land. It isn't what we are examining when we talk about land seizure without pay. We stand out from them on that, we are stuck, and we are analyzing with them on that," Mbalula said. 

He said when it went to the issue of clean towels and understudy commitment, which is in the EFF declaration, Mbalula said the ANC said they should set up a gathering, attract and consider each other. 

"We couldn't attempt to get to coalition, the conversations were dropped," Mbalula said.
