It is said that EFF members were traveling in the same way, and upon arriving at Luthuli House, they began singing anti-Cyril Ramaphosa and "he must go" songs. The red berets did not announce that they were going to do that, thus the encounter was unexpected.
This infuriated other ANC comrades, who thought that the EFF should have stated that they would be carrying the fight against Cyril Ramaphosa to Luthuli House, so that they, too, might have mobilized in response.
When he stated that the government could no longer defend illegal immigrants, members of the Economic Freedom Fighters also accuse Pule Mabe of encouraging violence. They contend that this may have spurred the violent acts against illegal miners in Kagiso, which resulted in some of them being beaten by community members.
"Here, ANC spokesman Pule Mabe incites violence against black foreigners.
Informing black overseas nationals that their safety in South Africa is no longer guaranteed, "said an EFF member.
Pule Mabe, the ANC's spokesperson, stated that EFF members' statements were reckless and that the red berets were attempting to gain popularity by distorting the truth.
"No, do not alter what we said to gain popularity; that would be irresponsible. We discussed illegal immigrants and foreign nationals without proper documentation. Order will be restored and communities will regain their stability "he said.
Cyril Ramaphosa is however on the radar of the red berets and other opposition parties. Floyd Shivambu, the party's deputy, stated that their goal is to haul the ANC leader before the impeachment investigation to determine if he is fit to hold office, and then move a vote of no confidence to remove him from office.
