The Economic Freedom Fighters have released a statement following the resignation of two MPs. The party has lamented the loss of 'hard-working women cadres', but claims the movement is now in an 'even stronger position'.
The EFF has released a statement on the resignations of Tebogo Mokwele and Nkagisang Mokgosi.
Briefly.co.za reported that the pair had thrown in the towel after it was revealed they each benefited R80 000 from President Cyril Ramaphosa's CR17 campaign fund.
The Red Berets applauded the MPs for their 'confessions', saying that they took responsibility by giving up their respective positions. The fact that both women chose to remain members of the party was highly-commended:
"Above all, we applaud them for insisting on keeping their membership of the organisation, which is a rare act in politics across the world."
The party claimed that 'all of us' stood to learn a great deal from the experiences of these two politicians:
"We must learn to confide within the safe keep of the revolution, lest fall prey to the enemy camp as they did."
