ANC and EFF in talks about possible alliance – report

The EFF and ANC are reportedly in talks and could form an alliance.

According the Sunday Times, there have been informal discussions between senior leaders of both parties.

It was a wish of the late Winnie Madikizela-Mandela for EFF leader Julius Malema to return to the ANC or work together in national interest.

The paper reports that Malema has spoken to President Cyril Ramaphosa about what is necessary for a co-operation.

During Madikizela-Mandela’s funeral on Saturday, ANC NEC member Fikile Mbalula said the party will honour Madikizela-Mandela’s dying wish and return Malema to the ruling party.

Malema, however, addressed the matter during his tribute at the funeral.

“Mama, you said to us we must come back to the ANC, we heard you. But which ANC do we go to? Of the same people who sold you out? Of the same people who were ready to give you the enemy?”

It’s understood the “partnership” will not happen before the 2019 general elections.
