Former Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) national chairperson Dali Mpofu says ANC President Cyril Ramaphosa winning a second term at the party’s elective conference is probably the worst thing that could happen to the continent’s longest running liberation movement – and he doesn’t mind it.

Mpofu did not hold back when he appeared on DJ Sbu’s podcast, The Hutlers Corner, weighing on the Ramaphosa, some of his scandals as well as the upcoming election season.

Mpofu, a staunch EFF supporter, reckons an ANC led by Ramaphosa for a second term would serve the red berets well in 2024 as more people would vote for them as the alternative.

“Of course his funders will still try to put up a fight but for us as the EFF, the best outcome is for Cyril to be returned as ANC president at the ANC conference. It will be an unmitigated disaster. It will be easiest ANC for us to defeat and an ANC that is led by someone like Cyril Ramaphosa,” Mpofu said.


Dali Mpofu had quite a lot to say about ANC President Cyril Ramaphosa and the prospect of him staying another four years at the Union Buildings.

Mpofu says it will prove to be very difficult for Ramaphosa to bag another term, if one factors in the disastrously handled Phala Phala farm robbery and Eskom’s inability to keep the lights on.

“Firstly, he does not even deserve it. Secondly, I think the dynamics within the party with the Phala Phala thing and the combination of non-performing leadership and the Eskom crisis and all that will at some stage combine and collapse him and the ANC,” he said.

Mpofu further said he hopes Ramaphosa, or someone works emerges victorious at Luthuli House, so he can celebrate.

“That organisation is dead. Like Coca-Cola, the ANC is a strong brand but that thing is an imagination. It died a log time ago. It will take time for the brand to die but the brand will eventually die the same way the organisation has died”
