EFF: 'Men are patriarchal all of them. That is why we refer to them as trash'

Mandisa Mashego has been elected as the Economic Freedom Fighter's chairperson in Gauteng.

Mashego says she has to fight patriarchy and misogyny within her party. She, however, says that patriarchy within the EFF is symptomatic of what is happening in our society.

Speaking to Xolani Gwala on the Afternoon drive, she explains:

I'm a 45-year-old woman and I would be called a gogo but there would be a man who is my age and is also contesting but akabizwa umkhulu.

Mandisa Mashego, Gauteng EFF chairperson 

There is no patriarchy in the EFF, there is patriarchy in South Africa.

Mandisa Mashego, Gauteng EFF chairperson 

The patriarchy in South Africa, which you are asking me about.

Mandisa Mashego, Gauteng EFF chairperson 

I'm not the kind of person who can defend wrong things. Men are patriarchal all of them. That is why we refer to you as trash. You are all trash.

Mandisa Mashego, Gauteng EFF chairperson
