EFF Deputy President Floyd Shivambu held a press conference on Monday afternoon, to share the party's sympathies, after the passing of ANC veteran Ben Turok.
Earlier in the day, the Turok family released a statement, announcing the death of the former anti-apartheid activist. "He was always outspoken and dedicated his whole life to fighting for freedom, equality and social justice in South Africa.
He was a loyal, lifetime member of the ANC, but retained an independent perspective throughout," the statement said.
