Mpofu replied to a tweet by the EFF communications manager that suggested the fighters would boycott the lecture, and instead attend the public hearings on land.
EFF national chairperson Dali Mpofu’s tweet on Tuesday suggested the party would boycott former US president Barack Obama’s Nelson Mandela lecture.
Obama is expected to deliver the 16th Nelson Mandela Annual Lecture at the Wanderers Cricket Stadium in Illovo, Johannesburg, on Tuesday.
Responding to a tweet by EFF national communications manager Sixolise Gcilishe, Mpofu said the EFF would boycott the lecture because Obama had allegedly been complicit in the killing of former Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi and because the former US president would meet President Cyril Ramaphosa, whom Mpofu accused of being behind the murder of Mgcineni ‘Mambush’ Noki.
You mean the guy who murdered our Brother Leader Muammar Gaddafi for oil is in town and Africans will be clapping hands?
