Economic Freedom Fighters leader Julius Malema said the picture shared by Dali Mpofu of him with Zindzi and Zenani Mandela at Winnie Madikizela-Mandela’s house in Soweto should not give anyone “heart palpitations”.
Malema said people should not make a big deal out of family members having a private moment and taking pictures while at it. Though the Mandela sisters were seen wearing EFF caps, Malema said even that is not enough to make conclusions on whether they had ditched the ANC.
He told EWN: “I don’t know [if they are joining the EFF], I think the two and Dali can explain, I think they were just embracing one another as family. They were having a private moment, it really doesn’t mean anything, it shouldn’t give anyone palpitations.
Today Mam Zenani is wearing ANC colours, there shouldn’t be an issue out of family members fooling around, playing with each other, taking pictures. It was just a lighter moment among family members and we shouldn’t think high of exchanging of caps.
