Durban - The EFF in KwaZulu-Natal had fighting talk for SACP leader Blaze Nzimande, hitting out at him for having no "struggle credentials", among other things.

At a press briefing held in Durban, the Provincial Command Team launched the scathing tirade against Nzimande.  

“The utterances of top ANC and SACP leaders that demonise the judiciary as an anti-majoritarian liberal offensive whenever the courts rule against the ANC and/or the State are completely unacceptable and constitute a significant threat to the rule of law and the principle of separation of powers among the three arms of government,” their statement read.

“We want to warn the yellow communist and political dwarf Blade Nzimande to wait for alcohol to exit his system before opening his big mouth. But also we are aware that it would mean Blade will never speak again because alcohol is a permanent resident in his shapeless tired body.

“True to history as an IFP-produced askari with no struggle credentials - none whatsoever - Blade sees absolutely nothing wrong for a leader of his station in government to make such reckless public remarks with a potential to incite violence.

"As an askari, Blade’s trade was to cause conflict and shorten the road to violence,” they chided. 

“We will be staging a march in the Durban CBD themed ‘Hands off Our Judiciary’ to demonstrate our grave concerns about the ruling party’s openly anti-judiciary posture, displayed by a wide variety of leaders of the ANC and its alliance partners.

“Twenty one years of relative peace and stability in the country have rendered the likes of Blade redundant and completely irrelevant... The EFF will never be suffocated by the day-care centers of YCL and the ANCYL who have no appreciation of the historic mission of this generation."

The statement went on to say that they were fighting for economic freedom.

“We are waging two extremely different struggles,” the statement read.   

“The EFF in KwaZulu-Natal will be launching all the remaining regions in August as part of preparing for local government elections. We will be contesting all wards in KZN and we are certain that we will do very well as the EFF,” they said.
