Black First Land First leader, Andile Mngxitama, has called for an inquiry into not only EFF leader, Julius Malema, but President Cyril Ramaphosa too. It appears as if Mngxitama believes the president was an apartheid collaborator and that the EFF are agents from MI6.
In an open letter to President Cyril Ramaphosa, Andile Mngxitama has demanded a commission of inquiry into claims that Ramaphosa sold out during apartheid and rumors that the EFF are linked to British intelligence agency MI6.
This follows the Economic Freedom Fighter's calls for an inquiry into Mosiuoa Lekota's recent claim at the SONA debate. During the event in Parliament, Lekota had claimed the president had sold out his comrades during apartheid.
Naturally, Ramaphosa had denied the allegations in Parliament, adding that such an inquiry would be a waste. The president had advised people not to believe the rumors, claiming he had heard similar sentiments about the EFF being an 'MI6 project'.
Mngxitama has taken these allegations to heart and has demanded an inquiry into the matter. Ramaphosa had mentioned that the rumors had stemmed from a trip Julius Malema, leader of the EFF, had taken to London a few years back.
According to the BLF leader, this is just cause for further investigation, he commented in the letter that:
“It is now of public record that the EFF had met the British establishment on this occasion in question. To this end, Lord Robin Renwick, the Queen of England’s representative, has confirmed in his book that he met the EFF at the request of the group. This suggests that the party may have already been handled by the British intelligence agency. Otherwise, why would an organisation that claims to be socialist want to see the representative of the Queen?”
