The EFF's Natasha Ntlangwini says that her party is so committed to renaming Cape Town International Airport that they would take up arms if the need arose. The party is also calling for sentences for sexual offences to be doubled in the next five years.
Honouring the late Winnie Madikizela-Mandela by naming Cape Town International Airport after her is something the EFF is reportedly so committed to that they would take up arms.
Eyewitness News reported that Natasha Ntlangwini, EFF MP, is adamant that the struggle icon's legacy will be remembered for years to come:
“We see you and how you want to erase us the way you erased Mama Winnie. We are telling you today, we’re going nowhere. We will get the Winnie Madikizela International Airport even if we must take up arms. We’ll get it, whether today or tomorrow.”
Addressing EFF supporters during a march to the Constitutional Court yesterday, Ntlangwini demanded that the justice system receives training on how to handle sexual violence cases and femicides.
“South African women are terrified of courts. They’re even more terrified of courts than police stations because when they appear in court, they have to explain how they were raped. They have to remember details such as what colour panty they were wearing. That’s an abuse of highest note.”

The MP further says that the Economic Freedom Fighters will be amending legislation to increase sentences and double sexual offences convictions over the course of the next five years, should they win next monts election.
