ANC Secretary- General Fikile Mbalula has welcomed more than 50 alleged expelled EFF members back into the party. This after the EFF fired some of its public representatives who failed to organise transport for supporters to the party’s 10th anniversary rally.
There has, however, been footage circulating on social media alleging that the members were given EFF t-shirts just before entering the venue where Mbalula was speaking.
The ANC Secretary-General was at the Wedela Community Hall in Gauteng’s West Rand earlier today.
“We are strengthened by the presence of these comrades and there are many others in the EFF, some have left who will be joining the ANC back. And we are telling them that we welcome you with open hands you will not be judged here in the ANC and we appreciate the fact that on their own voluntary they chose to come back home and they’ve got their reasons why they do so.”
Meanwhile, Mbalula says the ANC is confident in the appointment of the new Eskom CEO Dan Marokane.
“Dan Marokane is a well-travelled executive and he worked at Eskom for the longest of time and we want to express our support for him to do his job is the fact that he has got experience and he knows Eskom and that’s what’s important for us. Rather than just taking a nobody like we have seen who knows nothing about the workings inside Eskom.”
