The Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) in KwaZulu-Natal have vehemently denied allegations of attacking and assaulting former Ukhozi FM presenter, Ngizwe Mchunu.
The party has labelled these claims as part of a political ploy orchestrated by “Nhlanhla Lux” to create controversy.
Maswi Blose, the EFF provincial communicator, expressed his party’s dissatisfaction with the rumours circulating on social media, stating that there is no credible evidence to support them.
Mchunu recently filed a case of assault against a group of men who disrupted a media briefing in Durban. In a video that has since gone viral, these men, alleged to be EFF members, can be seen causing chaos by dragging and kicking furniture and equipment.
The purpose of the briefing was to provide an update on the upcoming program scheduled for February 10 at Moses Mabhida Stadium, where the EFF plans to hold a manifesto as part of their election campaign leading up to the 2024 general elections.
Earlier this month, Mchunu made headlines by threatening to prevent EFF leader Julius Malema from holding a rally in KZN. He expressed his strong opposition, stating that he would not allow Malema to enter the stadium while he was still alive.
Mchunu also accused Malema of pressuring JAC Motors in KZN to withdraw their sponsorship of his vehicle, citing Mchunu’s alleged “tribalistic” remarks against him.
However, the car dealership denied these claims and stated that their decision to end the sponsorship was not influenced by any discussions with Malema.
