Zorro Boshielo has resigned as the EFF’s Gauteng chairperson and member of the party.

“It is after much contemplation and with a great deal of sadness that I hereby tender my resignation as the chairperson of Gauteng EFF and a member of the EFF,” wrote Boshielo to party leader Julius Malema.

The Economic Freedom Fighters has been marred by infighting since its People’s Assembly last year.

Some high-ranking members, including land commissar Andile Mngxitama, have been suspended in the process.

Even more ordinary members were suspended in the Northern Cape for allegedly aligning themselves with the “rebels”.

Mngxitama, Lucky Twala, Khanyisile Litchfield-Tshabalala and Mpho Ramakatsa were suspended for fighting to “save the soul of the EFF”.
