JOHANNESBURG - The Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) wants the UK and US governments to be probed for fatalities amid the Afghanistan war.
The party released a statement condemning recent remarks made by Prince Harry in his book. In a leaked snippet of Prince Harry’s memoir, the controversial royal claimed that he killed 25 Taliban members.
The EFF condemned Harry’s remarks and deemed them “reckless, insensitive and inhumane”. The party said the monarch boasted about killing people during a “fabricated” war.

In the statement, the Red Berets expressed anger about Harry saying he didn’t see the people he killed as humans, but rather as chess pieces removed from the board.
The party said the ideology behind Harry’s remarks expressed “colonial logic” that was used to dispossess land.
According to TimesLIVE, the UK ministry of defence said soldiers were deployed to Afghanistan to offer “support” for the Afghanistan war.
Citizens found the EFF’s remarks humorous on social media

“Oops Harry, now you have done it.”
“So much happening in this Phala Phala country to be worrying about other countries.”
“What business is it of theirs? Themselves are a bunch of corrupt, thieving, criminals.”
