The EFF’s top leaders appear to be getting fighting fit ahead of Thursday’s address by Zuma in parliament.
If there were a time for you to ask the Economic Freedom Fighters leaders to intervene in any issue that isn’t about the state of the nation address (Sona), it is definitely not now. This is because they are putting all their energies preparing for yet another dramatic Sona episode in parliament on Thursday.
A Twitter user, seemingly also an EFF member, tweeted Ndlozi, asking him to help him with a paper on former president of Burkina Faso Thomas Sankara and his influence on youth in politics.
As interested as Ndlozi was on the topic, he unfortunately had to tell the user he could not help him as he was busy preparing to meet President Jacob Zuma for his Sona in parliament on Thursday.
One would have assumed the national spokesperson meant he was perhaps reading reports about what the president has been saying recently, or preparing questions to ask him, but no. The People’s Bae meant he was getting physically ready for the encounter.
He used emoticons to show that he’s lifting weight and doing cardio to get ready for another possibly bruising encounter with the National Assembly’s “white shirts” (plain-clothed bodyguards Ndlozi has previously joked with that he would be spraying them with Doom).
“It’s bad there my man, very bad, please. Maybe after hey,” he told the user.
