[WATCH] EFF's Shivambu's comments are race baiting 101- Eusebius McKaiser

To simply say this person is not African enough, I think that is race baiting 101. And I think the EFF need to check themselves. They are so desperate to remain relevant.

Eusebius McKaiser says despite the EFF being arrogant he will give them advice because they need to check themselves.

This comes after EFF parliamentary chief whip Floyd Shivambu objected to the deputy director-general's Ismail Momoniat's presence at a finance committee meeting because he was 'un-African'.

Eusebius tells the EFF...

We need you to work. The ANC has been a massive disappointment since 1994 and continues to be a disappointment. The DA is a hot mess. we don't know what they stand for in terms of political ideology.

Eusebius McKaiser, show host

We need you to demonstrate to the big two parties the ANC and the DA that they are not the only game in town. But we cannot trust you if you are going to become in your rhetoric increasingly more far left wing in a really bad way.

Eusebius McKaiser, show host

The kind of rhetoric we heard from Floyd Shivambu yesterday is unacceptable. It's racist.

Callers weighed in on the matter and expressed how unhappy they are with the comments by Shivambu.

I worked with Mr Momoniat. I am black and young and he was always interested in my development and moving up in the Treasury. I think the EFF has completely lost it with this comment. And for someone who might have voted for them, I have completely turned my back on them now.

Mitchell, Caller

One of the basic ideological tenants of the EFF is anti-imperialism and that's what they believe they stand for. My question to the EFF is, I wonder what their religion is? I wouldn't be surprised if many of them were Christians. and if you look at what Christianity is and the basis and where it came from, surely, that would be something that does not align with what they stand for in terms of anti-imperialism.
