ANC con­demns EFF at­tack

The Sunday Independent - - METRO -

THE ANC has said the EFF’s at­tacks on Pub­lic En­ter­prises Min­is­ter Pravin Gord­han and the state cap­ture in­quiry re­flected the po­lit­i­cal stance of US Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump.

ANC head of the pres­i­dency Zizi Kodwa said the EFF’s at­tacks on the in­quiry were un­der­min­ing the ANC’s ef­fort to get to the root of state cap­ture, and he likened the EFF’s at­tacks to Trump’s na­tion­al­is­tic and right-wing po­lit­i­cal po­si­tion.

Kodwa’s com­ments came af­ter EFF leader Julius Malema told sup­port­ers protest­ing out­side on Tues­day that the in­quiry was a “Mickey Mouse show” that was rob­bing the poor.

Kodwa said ear­lier the EFF’s cam­paign – es­pe­cially the party’s use of “race-hate” pol­i­tics to stir up anger among its sup­port­ers – should be stopped as it could un­der­mine democ­racy.
