Economic Freedom Fighter member and student activist Vuyani Pambo put on quite a show in his speech after accepting an award on behalf of the producers of television documentary Everything Must Fall, during the 2019 South African Film and Television Awards in Sun City on March 2, 2019.
Pambo accepted the award on behalf of Uhuru productions, which won the award for best documentary feature, dedicating the award to the children of the mine workers who died during the Marikana massacre. He said he was there to accept the award on behalf of all those who’d advocated for free decolonised education.
He mentioned Khaya Cekeshe, Mlungisi Madonsela, and Katlego Monareng, who’d all advocated for “free decolonised quality education”. The outspoken EFF member challenged Arts and Culture Minister Nathi Mthethwa by saying children would soon obtain free quality decolonised education under the leadership of the EFF before ending his acceptance speech, urging people to vote for the EFF on May 8.
