Watch: EFF Members Take 'Fight' Against Cyril To ANC's Luthuli House


Economic Freedom Fighters members were seen outside ANC's Luthuli House singing that the ruling party's president, Cyril Ramaphosa must go.

It is alleged that EFF members were passing in the same direction, and when they got to Luthuli House they started singing songs against Cyril Ramaphosa and that he must go. It was a surprise encounter as the red berets didn't announce that they were going to do that.

This however angered some ANC comrades who felt that EFF should have announced that they were bringing the fight against Cyril Ramaphosa to Luthuli House and they too could have also mobilised to respond accordingly.

Economic Freedom Fighters members are also accusing Pule Mabe of inciting violence when he said government could no longer protect illegal immigrants. They argue that this might have fueled the violent actions against illegal miners in Kagiso which saw some being beaten up by community members.

"Here is ANC spokesperson Pule Mabe instigating violence on black foreign nationals.Telling black foreign nationals that their safety is no longer guaranteed in South Africa," said an EFF member.

The ANC spokesperson, Pule Mabe however said the utterances by EFF member are irresponsible and that the red berets are trying to garner popularity by twisting the narrative.

"No, don't twist what we said to try and garner popularity, that’s too irresponsible. We spoke about illegal immigrants or undocumented foreign nationals. Order is going to be restored and stability will return to communities," he said.

The red berets along with other opposition parties are however on to Cyril Ramaphosa. Floyd Shivambu, the party's deputy said their plan is to drag the ANC leader before the impeachment inquiry to decide whether or not he is fit to hold office, and then afterwards move a motion of no confidence to kick him out of office.

Ramaphosa's opponents argue that the same way he suspended Public Protector, Busisiwe Mkhwebane, he is also going to fall on the same sword and that goes without much saying that "what goes around, comes around".
