EFF: "Moonsamy has a right to continue dancing to whatever gallery she is dancing for"

Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) spokesperson Mbuyiseni Ndlozi says the party is proud of the decision it took to vote with the Democratic Alliance (DA), despite the views of former treasurer general Magdalene Moonsamy.

In an exclusive interview with Jacaranda FM News, Moonsamy said she believes the EFF sold out black South Africans when it decided to partner with the DA following last year's local government elections. 


"I will never be dragged into the historical blunder of having sold the blood and tears of our people," said Moonsamy. 


But Ndlozi says they bear no grudges against Moonsamy. 


"The EFF does not own Magdalene. She has a democratic right to continue dancing to whatever gallery she is dancing for, seven months after the decision of the EFF she is talking about was taken, and leave us out of it. She has taken a decision not to be part of us anymore and it is her democratic right. We wish her well, as we wish everybody else," says Ndlozi.

Moonsamy also said the ANC deserves plaudits for finally realising it made a mistake in expelling EFF leader Julius Malema.


"The ANC may now realise that the expulsion was wrong. Whether they realised it too early or too late, well, it's just five years since (the ANC conference in) Mangaung. I commend (Mpumalanga Premier) DD Mabuza and (ANC chairperson in KZN) Sihle Zikalala for saying Julius Malema's expulsion was wrong," said Moonsamy.
