Johannesburg – The Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) has confirmed the resignation of businessman Kenny Kunene from their party.

"The central command team found him a very great person to work with, and so did many in the rank and file," EFF spokesperson Mbuyiseni Ndlozi said in a statement.

"We were particularly impressed by his charisma, fearlessness, and wisdom to dissect complex challenges."

Last week the EFF denied reports that Kunene has quit the party.

"Kunene has not left the party... he has asked to be relieved of his leadership responsibilities," Ndlozi said at the time.

According to the reports, Kunene had quit as EFF head of campaigns, mobilisation, and special projects.

Ndlozi said on Monday the EFF would welcome working with Kunene in future.

"We wish him well with his future endeavours, particularly with the immediate challenge he has accepted in lending a hand in the resolution of the Cape Town gang wars," he said.

"We are, above all pleased that he remains committed in making this country work, particularly in the spirit of radical economic justice espoused in the policies of the EFF which he helped consolidate."

In July, Kunene said he was going into politics full-time as a member of the EFF, led by expelled ANC Youth League leader Julius Malema.

Kunene wrote a scathing open letter to President Jacob Zuma before joining the EFF, criticising his leadership.
