The EFF turns its attention to the election of the Central Command Team and policy discussions on the third day of its second National People’s Assembly.
The Economic Freedom Fighters delegates attending the party’s second National People’s Assembly will nominate and vote for the Central Command Team, the highest decision-making body between assemblies.
Late on Saturday night, the party’s top six officials were all elected unopposed.
The rest of Sunday will be spent discussing the EFF’s policy documents, as well as the three reports, namely the political report, the organisational report and the treasurer’s report.

EFF president Julius Malema says delegates must not be excited. DOR is trying to protect them. This after delegates complained about the security team. On Saturday night at least five women were caught in a stampede and pepper sprayed. #EFFNPA2019 (@lizTandwa) pic.twitter.com/RP603q8uC9

Malema says the party must train the DOR to deal with legitimate delegates.
“But when it comes to rascals and any agent provocateur they must deal with it decisively without thinking twice in protection of the red flag, the EFF. We are in crisis here. People attack our meetings all the time … The police are hostile to the EFF. They belong to the regime which is hostile to the EFF.”
EFF President Julius Malema started speaking about minutes ago. He addressed concerns raised about the DOR guards.
He starts by blasting those who raised concerns and called for marshalls to be deployed, as opposed to the DOR.
“Don’t be excited. You just stand up here and say, ‘We don’t want DOR! We don’t want DOR!’ A product of DOR. You come from disrupted conferences that were protected by DOR, you come here you get excited. You must never be excited. For us to be here those people of DOR had to put their lives at risk.”
PS: Moonsamy was the party’s treasurer general until she resigned.
