AFRICANGLOBE – Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) leader Julius Malema has claimed that the ANC has planted agent provocateurs to destabilise his new party in the same manner that the governing party destroyed the Congress of the People (Cope) and other Black-led parties.
“They are being used as infiltrators to collapse the EFF, render it dysfunctional and impose the same fate as all opposition parties since 1994 that were started and led by Black leadership,” he said.
Malema said such tactics would fail in the EFF because he was well aware of them. He claims to have been part of the “underground core” within the ANC that planned and executed the destruction and eventual collapse of Cope from its inception in 2009.
Some disgruntled members of the EFF in Gauteng have accused Malema of dictatorship and of resorting to tactics he used when he was in the ANC Youth League to remove people from crucial positions ahead of the EFF’s elective conference in December.
