- Economic Freedom Fighters Students Command (EFFSC) leader Mandla Shikwambana issued a stern warning to higher learning institutions
- Shikwambana vowed to make them ungovernable if they are deemed to only favour whites
- Shikwambana also denied claims from party leader Julius Malema when he referred to the wing as "useless"
EFF leader Julius Malema recently took aim at the party's Students Command wing.
Malema labelled the division as "useless" and even questioned if they should be allowed to continue.
In typical fighter fashion, the EFFSC has come out guns blazing and issued a threat directed at the country's tertiary institutions.
EFFSC President Mandla Shikwambana outlined their agenda for 2020 at a press conference on Friday and took aim at the higher learning institutions.
Shikwambana touched on the demands that have been made by the EFFSC and threatened to make those institutions ungovernable.
He claimed that these institutions favour whites only and that the public schooling system is a joke.
Ironically, the EFFSC issued similar threats a year ago through previous leader Peter Keetse.
The Citizen also reported that Shikwambana denied any allegations of corruption within the EFF and highlighted the significance of the Students Command.
In response to Malema's harsh words, Shikwambana said: “It has been proven to say we are able to do things by ourselves”.
Shikwambana added, “There is no one in the EFF leadership, as far as I know, who is actually corrupt. It’s you media that is making them corrupt."
Briefly.co.za gathered there to be no love lost between the EFF and ANC at junior levels.
According to Shikwambana, the ANC is able to provide substantial support to its youth league due to excess funding they receive by corrupt means.
