Political analyst Somadoda Fikeni says the DA and the EFF have always been far apart politically.
Speaking to Ray White on The Midday Report, Fikeni says it is very likely that we will see a lot of collaborations between the EFF and ANC on a number of issues.
The EFF had threatened to break its coalitions with the Democratic Alliance following the DA's failure to support the EFF's motion in Parliament for the expropriation of land without compensation.
Without any doubt, I think the EFF and the DA have been drifting apart for some time now. We should understand that the glue that brought them together was Jacob Zuma and corruption.— Somadoda Fikeni, Political analyst
Fikeni says the departure of former president Zuma is the biggest challenge for all political parties.
EFF would have to struggle to be distinct from the ANC; they might even claim that they've been the ones who put pressure for some policies to be followed.— Somadoda Fikeni, Political analyst
The DA will have to struggle with the fact that they have always showcased Cape Town as a city of clean governance; as a city without corruption. Now in trying to pull down Patricia De Lille that damaged the whole narrative.— Somadoda Fikeni, Political analyst
Fikeni says the issue of geographical names and the issue of transformation of the ownership of companies is a massive issue that DA's liberal ideology has never grappled with.
Fikeni says most political parties that are emerging are more to the left than the right....listen for more.
