EFF Deputy President Floyd Shivambu has come to the defence of spokesperson Mbuyiseni Ndlozi. However, Mzansi is adamant that Ndlozi's intelligence had nothing to do with the matter.
Dr Mbuyiseni Ndlozi has been dubbed Malema's ' ice boy' after videos showed the EFF spokesperson interacting with the leader in a way many feel resembles bullying.
Taking to social media, Floyd Shivambu has defended Ndlozi, slamming those who have expressed their concerns.
"Of course the small minds & Fools will write nonsense about Dr. Mbuyiseni Ndlozi because he’s the brightest, most qualified and most eloquent young revolutionary political leader in South Africa and Africa currently. By all standards he is. Dogs don’t bark at motionless vehicles!"
This comment did little to reassure the masses that Ndlozi was not suffering at the hands of the EFF's leadership, who demanded to know why the spokesperson seemed to be 'treated like an intern'.
