The Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) issued a statement concerning the erupting xenophobic attacks saying the country’s unemployment shouldn’t be blamed on African brothers but on Pres. Zuma’s party – the ANC.

EFF lamented that South Africa’s “current debacle pertaining to unemployment and inequality” has been “wrongfully placed and blamed on African brothers and sisters, and black people from the developing world.”

Also, the party upheld that the march against foreign nationals is “disingenuous ” and a platform to groom Black on Black violence.

To the Fighters, the failure of South Africa “ought to be put at the door of the ANC.

“The ANC has failed to transform the lives of South Africans. In the midst of attempting to confront economic strongholds against Black people, white monopoly capital has been left untouched,” EFF contended.
