The EFF's Floyd Shivambu has said that his party will oust the DA from its leadership position in Tshwane.

The EFF deputy president was highly critical of the DA, saying the EFF had entered into a coalition with the party under the assumption that it would put a stop to corruption.

However, Shivambu claims the DA has handed out tenders to its friends and reserved high profile positions for white people only.

Shivambu also said that the DA had performed poorly as the leaders of Tshwane. This comes after allegations that were shady deals done regarding the city's R1.2 billion contract with Glad Africa.

This deal has been the cause of major tensions in the Tshwane leadership between former mayor Solly Msimanga and municipal manager Moeketsi Mosola.

Both the DA and the EFF want Mosoloa to be axed, Briefly.co.za learned.

Shivambu's comments follow Julius Malema's announcement that the EFF would no longer enter into coalitions with the DA.

He said he was unhappy that the DA had suggested that the EFF was involved in the VBS looting scandal.

He also said the EFF would get rid of tenders and take matters into its own hands, claiming that if the party took office it would provide services "directly".
