- Former Fees Must Fall activist Vuyani Pambo and MP Delisile Ngwenya are officially the EFF's new spokespersons
- Mbuyiseni Ndlozi has opted to step down, taking over as the head of political education instead
- The former spokesperson is adamant he will remain a loyal member of the party, despite the change
Mbuyiseni Ndlozi has stepped down as the EFF's National Spokesperson and will be the party's new head of political education.
Commenting on the announcement, Ndlozi highlighted that he would remain a loyal member of the Red Berets:
“I just want to thank you colleagues for the good relations we had, even the bad ones. Mr President has said for those we are not apologetic. Andiyi ndawo (I'm going nowhere). I'm duly elected commissar of the EFF and I will work for this organisation because it's the future and no-one will stop it. I want to wish Delisile Ngwenya and Vuyani Pambo the best, and please treat them well.”
Pambo, a former Fees Must Fall activist, and Ngwenya, a Member of Parliament, have taken over as the mouthpieces for the party.
TimesLIVE reports that Ngwenya had served as a member of the National Council of Provinces, becoming an EFF MP four years ago.
With a passion for gender equality and the plight facing women and children in South Africa, Ngwenya was drawn to the party because of its stance on land reform.
Pambo's claim to fame was his role in the Fees Must Fall protests during his time as an EFF student leader at Wits University.
He was awarded a South African Film and TV Award (SAFTA) for best documentary feature for Everything Must Fall.
