We won't negotiate land expropriation without compensation in coalitions - EFF

The Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) will not negotiate on their stance regarding land expropriation without compensation and nationalisation of mines should they enter into a coalition with a political counterpart.

According to national spokesperson of the opposition party, Mbuyiseni Ndlozi, the party led by Julius Malema won't betray their supporters by changing their position on their political ideologies.

The party has positioned itself as a radical and pro-Black working class institution advocating for free education, land expropriation without compensation and nationalisation of mines and banks.

702's Nikiwe Bikitsha (standing in for John Robbie) spoke to him regarding their strategy in possible coalition talks.

Listen to the interview below:

We're not only meeting the DA, we're meeting everyone including the IFP, the UDM and others. We didn't win anything, we are very humble.

Mbuyiseni Ndlozi, EFF national spokesperson

We'll never negotiate our identity with anybody. We will never negotiate our principles... Land must be compensated without compensation because it's a human rights matter. It was taken through a crime against humanity, which was colonisation and apartheid.

Mbuyiseni Ndlozi, EFF national spokesperson
