Marshall Dlamini rewarded for growing EFF in KZN

- | 3 months ago

Newly-elected EFF secretary-general Marshall Dlamini is a fixer whose political career took off during the expulsion of party leader Julius Malema from the ANC eight years ago.

Unlike the majority of EFF leaders who are former ANC Youth League (ANCYL) leaders, Dlamini, who hails from uMzimkhulu, had never occupied a leadership position in either the league or the ANC. Several ANC activists who were in leadership positions within the ANCYL in the ruling party’s Harry Gwala region, which includes uMzimkhulu­, do not recall Dlamini playing an active role in the ANC structures.

“I know almost all the comrades who were active within the ANCYL in the uMzikhulu and the entire Harry Gwala region — Marshall Dlamini is not amongst them,” said former ANCYL leader Thabiso Zulu, who is a former ANC Harry Gwala regional spokesperson.
