Leave 'the fat one', EFF members urged

Johannesburg - A group of supposedly former EFF members have ripped apart the party’s red T-shirts at the ANC’s Limpopo offices, City Press reported on Sunday.

ANC national chairperson Baleka Mbete walked out to welcome them.

The ANC on Saturday told journalists that the group was part of 1 800 former EFF members who had left Julius Malema’s party and joined the governing party.

The EFF, however, said the "defectors" had never belonged to the party.

Mbete briefly spoke to the ANC’s new members, saying it was only the beginning.

She welcomed the group, saying they had been given "appropriate clothing" [ANC T-shirts].

Reiterating Mbete’s words, ANC Youth League national convenor Mzwandile Masina said the trend would continue in all opposition parties.

He told the new members they had been misled by "the fat one", who made promises he couldn’t keep.
