The EFF and BLF both have similar ideals as far as land reform is concerned but it seems as if that is where the common ground ends.

A screenshot of a conversation that allegedly took place between senior EFF member Nazier Paulsen and the BLF's Sphelele Khumalo may well be a sign of the turmoil to come.

In the conversation, Paulsen reveals that he does not deem the BLF 'normal' and accuses the party of cowardice.

The EFF member then goes on to say that he hopes at least one BLF member makes it into Parliament so he has the opportunity to 'moer' them.

Leader of the BLF party, Andile Mngxitama - who had been expelled from the EFF - commented on the incident, labelling it as 'shocking' and vowing to take the matter further with the IEC.

Nazier Paulsen had been asked to give comment on the matter, but had chosen not to, reports The Citizen.
