Durban – Young Communist League of SA national secretary Mluleki Dlelanga has launched a stinging attack on the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF), calling it the vanguard of anarchy.

He contrasted them with the South African Communist Party (SACP), which he described as the vanguard of the working class.

At the same time, he urged students to "resist the temptations of class materialism".

"They must stop liking money, tenders, wearing expensive clothes, weaves and watches while they are still students. They must also learn to hate corruption,” said Dlelanga.

He was addressing more than 1 000 students at the University of Zululand on Thursday night, where he warned students to beware of the EFF.

Speaking to News24 on Friday, he said: “The SACP and the EFF are not the same. [The EFF] are only using our colours.”

Dlelanga also defended SACP general secretary Blade Nzimande’s struggle credentials following derogatory comments by the EFF's Floyd Shivambu.

Blade was in the struggle and he is here again to stand up against the EFF’s lumpen leadership and project. Blade will be here tomorrow when we declare South Africa a socialist state,” said Dlelanga.

He told students to remember their role in the institution of higher learning.

“Love your country, know the history of the revolution and know that the future is socialism."
