CONTROVERSIAL poet Ntsiki Mazwai came out guns blazing this past weekend, when she took aim at EFF leader Julius Malema.
Not one to ever mince her words, Ntsiki, who has shared her thoughts on the EFF before, said that Malema, who leads the party, should not be called a leader.
This, after she said that she believed that during the coronavirus lockdown, which started in March 2020, Malema has shown he doesn’t deserve the title of leader and that, while he had a big bark, he falls short on acting on his promises.
“Lockdown showed us Malema is not a leader, just someone who talks loudly,” she tweeted.
She also said the EFF has lost the members of the party who made it special, comparing the party to an aged pageant queen, which she believes is “sad”.
“Shame. This party has lost all the people who made it special. Now it’s like a past beauty queen. Walking confidently with wrinkles, while people laugh. So sad,” she wrote.
In March this year, Ntsiki hit back at claims that she once wanted to “impose” herself as EFF women’s league president, claiming no woman in the party has as much influence as her.
This, after a Twitter user dug up her old tweets about the party.
“It all started here, when Ntsiki Mazwai wanted to impose herself as an EFF women’s league head,” captioned the tweep.
Ntsiki hit back, saying she remains a star “with or without the EFF”.
“You’re still hurting. You can still feel my power, as no woman in the EFF has as much influence as me in SA, and they never will. I was not made by my position in the EFF. I am Ntsiki Mazwai, with or without the EFF,” said Ntsiki.
Ntsiki continued to take shots at the EFF and its leader Julius Malema, saying that the best he could do was call her a failed poet, which she found amusing.
After a tweep praised her for being more wise and intelligent than other members of the party, the star agreed, saying it was “clear as day”.
She also went on to hit back at claims that she was obsessed with the EFF, saying they were once “the more realistic opposition” but now she would have to start her own party.
