Speculation around EFF leadership could be manufactured by opponents - analyst
University of South Africa (Unisa) political analyst Professor Lesiba Teffo has suggested that reports around the leadership uptake in the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) could be fake news or manufactured by opponents.
There has been much speculation around who will hold which leadership positions as the party prepares to hold its elective conference in December, with reports that chairperson Dali Mpofu and secretary general Godrich Gardee might not remain in their posts.
Asked if it is a wise idea for Gardee and Mpofu to be removed from their positions, Teffo had this to say:
There is a guy called [Collen] Sedibe in Mpumalanga who seems to be very influential in this regard, who is the one trying to determine the direction in which the election should go but I can also put in the mix that they may be manufacturing it just to give credence to the outcome of the elections...Professor Lesiba Teffo, Political analyst - Unisa
Remember ... [party leader Julius] Malema said that as things stand, all positions are open, all positions are going to be contested, including himself...so it could be from within.Professor Lesiba Teffo, Political analyst - Unisa
