Not long ago, Busisiwe Mkhwebane, the former National Ombudsman of South Africa, made headlines when she joined forces with the Economic Political Dissidents, and it’s rumored that she’s considering challenging Julius Malema for the position of Commander in Chief.
Mkhwebane, a prominent figure in the South African political scene, has been announced as the Economic Political Dissidents’ parliamentary representative, marking a significant move for both her and the party.
However, recent reports suggest that Mkhwebane is aiming for a more influential role within the party. Some party members are expressing their discontent, feeling that high-profile newcomers are receiving attention while they, who’ve dedicated substantial time and effort, are being overlooked.
In recent times, the Economic Political Dissidents have welcomed notable figures to Parliament, including former African National Congress member Mzwanele Manyi.
Advocate Busisiwe Mkhwebane is confident that her extensive experience in the public sector can greatly benefit the party’s leadership as they strive to secure positions in both local and national government offices. The upcoming days might hold some interesting developments within the party’s leadership hierarchy.
Mkhwebane says she wants ‘position of authority’ in EFF, but party members say they have had enough of being sidelined for high-profile newcomers who haven’t put in the hourshttps://t.co/BmDHz7zuBj
