EFF Commander in Chief (CIC), Julius Malema, has predicted that presidential contender Cyril Ramaphosa will win the election to be the new President of the ANC and that Nkosazana Dlamini Zuma will lose because she’s supported by ‘crooks’.
Taking to Twitter, Malema said: “For those asking for my predictions, I think he will win. I don’t think she stands a good chance despite her good struggle credentials; she’s currently surrounded and supported by crooks. All leaders claiming to support her lost their branches, how do you explain that one?”
He later added: “Her supporters are extremely dishonest to a point of believing their own propaganda, they lied about branch nominations until they were officially announced then they changed the ball post. The new narrative now is that we have more delegates but they know very well it’s a lie.”
If she won, Dlamini-Zuma would become the first female leader of the ANC in its 105-year history.
She and Deputy President Ramaphosa lead the race for the presidential role. According to the most recent tally, Ramaphosa is winning with 1,859 party branch nominations compared to her 1,330 nominations.
Malema’s followers said , Gogo must win so that 2019 we finish them off”. Malema agreed, pointing out “I also want that but here I’m just giving my honest observation”.
The general feeling by Malema’s followers are that she would be disastrous, and continue the party’s downward spiral into self-serving greed with the Guptas appointing ministers and a corrupt KwaZulu-Natal ruling the country… which would put opposition parties in a stronger position come National Election time.
Malema said: “If I have time tomorrow, will tweet about the national coordinator of her campaign, the guy used to lead WC and he was extremely useless…”
One follower posted the below video in which Malema said Ramaphosa would never win, reminding him: “Comrade CIC, indeed you are not married to your opinions.”
President Jacob Zuma will step down as ANC President this weekend (but not as President of South Africa). The new ANC President is expected to be announced on Monday.
Malema reckons if it’s Ramaphosa, he “will take the country to the sophisticated capturers like the arrogant and white supremacist Ruperts and Oppenheimers” whilst if it’s Dhlamini-Zuma, she “will continue hubby’s legacy of mediocre capturers like Indian supremacist Guptas. Different sides of the same coin. Mmaweee”
For those asking for my predictions, I think he will win. I don’t think she’s stand a good chance despite her good struggle credentials, she’s currently surrounded and supported by crooks. All leaders claiming to support her lost their branches, how do you explain that one.
