SACP: EFF a dangerous cancer

Johannesburg - The Economic Freedom Fighters are a "dangerous cancer" trying to "smash" Parliament, the SA Communist Party said on Sunday.

"We call on all South Africans, including those members of the EFF parliamentary caucus who are themselves increasingly alarmed by the bus they have boarded, to isolate this dangerous cancer within our body politic," SACP general secretary Blade Nzimande told journalists in Johannesburg following the party's three-day central committee meeting.

"The leadership of the EFF is in Parliament in order to discredit and smash it."

On Thursday, EFF leader Julius Malema objected to President Jacob Zuma's reply to a question about when he was going to repay part of the R246m spent on security upgrades to his private Nkandla homestead in KwaZulu-Natal.

National Assembly Speaker Baleka Mbete ordered the red overall-clad MPs out after they began to disrupt proceedings and started chanting "pay back the money".

The MPs refused to leave, continuing to chant and shout slogans, forcing Mbete to adjourn proceedings.

Nzimande said Malema had long been supported by wealthy funders.

"We welcome reports that Sars is investigating the source of payments for Malema's tax debt. It is Sars on behalf of the people of South Africa that needs to be saying to Malema and his dodgy backers 'pay back the money'," Nzimande said.

Malema was acting like someone who had nothing to lose, he said.

"His behaviour, not just in Parliament in Cape Town, but in the Gauteng legislature, continues along the same trajectory of anarchic plunder and wrecking anything in his way, that characterised his conduct in Limpopo and as leader of ANCYL."

This behavior does not help ANC, EFE or even people that put them there. It help the capitalist knowing that five years will finish soon. And it's even a single law will be changed at that time.
