[LISTEN] There is an active coalition between the EFF and DA - Nkenke Kekana
Member of the African National Congress (ANC) national executive committee & chair of the party’s communication subcommittee, Nkenke Kekana has accused the Democratic Alliance and the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) of involved in a 'sophisticated con game'.
In an opinion piece published in the Business Day, Kekana says the parties are hoodwinking the electorate into believing they are competing with one another.
While the DA has not ruled out coalitions in key provinces, the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) recently said it will not get into a coalition with the opposition.
Referring to this Kekana says the two may give the impression that they have fallen out but there is still an active coalition.
It is not a surprise that the coalition between the EFF and the DA was not a principled one because the EFF clearly in its campaign is anti-white so how do you justify as the DA, getting into an alliance with a party that hates your core constituency?Nkenke Kekana- ANC national executive committee
There is a coalition here that is active, the DA would not have fired Msimang in Tshwane if it was not at the instance of the EFF.Nkenke Kekana- ANC national executive committee
In Johannesburg, the EFF is dictating terms in as far as Mayor Mashaba is concerned but our biggest worry is that this coalition has not worked because the EFF are cowards in not wanting to assume positions of responsibility so they are just a voting coalition but they do not want to take responsibility.Nkenke Kekana- ANC national executive committee
While the EFF refusing to take the responsibility of governing, I don't know why they contest elections in the first place because they do not want to govern.Nkenke Kekana- ANC national executive committee
Kekana asks if there is a fallout, why have the EFF failed to remove Johannesburg mayor Herman Mashaba before elections?
