The Economic Freedom Fighters are adamant that the promises the ruling party made at Winnie Mandela's funeral had not been kept. The party says they will not rest until the struggle icon's name was given the honour it deserved.
The Economic Freedom Fighters have pledged that there will be no rest for them until Winnie Madikizela-Mandela's name gets the honour she deserves.
This comes after the party lost their application in Parliament to name Cape Town's Airport after her as Briefly.co.za reported earlier.
The party had alleged that the ANC refuses to acknowledge Mandela as a leader of the liberation:
“It is clear they are scared of her, even in her death. Today, like they conspired in the ANC Women’s League, together with Stratcom, to remove her as president, they have once more removed her name to stand on its own."
The red berets now want it to go down in the history books that they had given the ANC an opportunity to 'undo its ill-treatment of Mama' and they had refused:
"All promises made by the ANC during her funeral remain empty and a perfect sign of hypocrisy"
According to The Citizen, the people must remind both the ruling party and the Democratic Alliance of their love for the late wife of Nelson Mandela. The rejection of her legacy, at least according to the EFF, must be repaid by rejecting the ANC.
