Dali Mpofu, EFF chairperson, says that the criticism Julius Malema sent his way has failed to offend him. Speaking during a media briefing yesterday, the party leader condemned members for being lazy in regards to strengthening the EFF.
The Chairperson of the Economic Freedom Fighters, Dali Mpofu, has responded to criticism levied his way by their leader, Julius Malema.
During a media briefing, the EFF leader had accused some in the party's leadership of being lazy, saying that:
"The reality of the situation is that our national chair is a senior counsel, forever in consultations, forever in courts and doing those many other things which are indirectly complementing the cause, but it doesn't directly translate into strengthening the organisation."
In response, Mpofu maintains that there are no hard feelings between them, claiming that the EFF is the most united party.
The chairman insists that the party is not united due to friendship, but rather their 'single-minded' determination to 'liberate the poor' and achieve equality in South Africa, reports the eNCA.
Mpofu responded to Malema's comments by insisting he had not taken them personally, saying:
“We are robust, sometimes when we are debating and fighting you’d think that we are fighting but that is not a personal thing.”
Briefly.co.za reported yesterday that the Economic Freedom Fighter leader had some choice words for ANC leader and incoming President Cyril Ramaphosa, saying that his 'New Dawn' was just the same 'old Vaseline'.
