- The ANC in Tshwane says they do not trust Malema's statement that the EFF will no longer vote with the DA
- They slammed the EFF leader, as well as the DA
- The ANC says they won't be surprised if Malema changes his mind once again
The ANC in Tshwane has slammed EFF leader Julius Malema, calling him a "serial flip-flopper".
The party added that they do not believe Malema's announcement that the EFF will no longer be voting with the DA.
The ANC said it was not surprised by the difficulties in the relationship between the DA and EFF, however, describing it as a "big flop".
The last few days have been rocky for the DA and EFF. While the parties have working relationships in several metros, these have been jeopardise by Malema's vow that the Red Berets will no longer side with the DA. Malema has also said that the EFF will not vote with the ANC either, Briefly.co.za has gathered.
This move by the EFF has put the DA's grip on power at risk in some places. In Tshwane, however, Mayor Stevens Mokgalapa has said that he expects little will change, as the DA and EFF already had an adversarial relationship in the city.
Nevertheless, the ANC has been scathing in its criticism of both the EFF and DA in recent days. According to The Citizen, the ANC in Tshwane called the DA and EFF's relationship a "nefarious coalition government".
Additionally, they slammed the DA as the party of "white privilege" and called the EFF a "quasi radical Marxist-Fanon movement with no form".
