The Commander in Chief (CIC) of the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF), Mr Julius Malema, has committed to assist a disabled woman, Mama Wendy Kaleni of Block A Jubilee in Hammanskraal, to acquire a wheelchair.
This happened during the EFF roadshow to mobilise communities around Tshwane to attend the EFF Manifesto Launch that will be taking place on 02 February 2019 at Soshanguve’s Giant stadium.
“The EFF will help get Mama Wendy a wheelchair,” Mr Malema said.
Earlier in the day he also addressed a community meeting in Akasia where he invited community members to attend the Manifesto Launch in Soshanguve.
This follows an EFF leadership structures meeting that took place during the past weekend in Mangaung in the Free State province to discuss the election manifesto launch and nominations of public representatives.
In a statement, Dr Mbuyiseni Ndlozi, the National Spokesperson of the EFF, said the leadership structures that met in Free State comprised 52 Regional Command Teams, 9 Provincial Command Teams and the Central Command Team to consider the EFF National Elections Manifesto and National List of individuals to serve in provincial legislatures and parliament.
“We are proud to announce that this assembly discussed the EFF Manifesto in detail and that the Central Command Team has since adopted it. This is the manifesto that will be launched on the 2nd of February 2019 in Soshanguve,” he said.
Dr Ndlozi said the EFF also discussed the issue of DA’s Solly Msimanga resigning as Tshwane mayor.
“The EFF finds the reasons provided by Msimanga that he needs to focus exclusively on the election campaign for premiership of Gauteng as unconvincing and we therefore dismiss them as frivolous.
“Our view is that Msimanga’s decision is driven by the intention of covering up a much deeper problem in the white dominated DA assembly of the Tshwane metro council,” he said.
The EFF further stated that if it is to accept these reasons, then it means that there are different rules for black people in the DA because Hellen Zille campaigned for the position of Premier of the Western Cape whilst she held the positions of the Mayor in the City of Cape Town and DA national leader.
“We will closely monitor developments in Tshwane and when the time to elect a new mayor comes, we will announce our cause of action,” Dr Ndlozi said.
