Johannesburg, November 4, 2013-Advocate Dali Mpofu has dumped the ANC after 33 years to join Julius Malema’s Economic Freedom Fighters.
Mpofu has submitted his resignation letter to the ANC’s Saxonwold branch 117, north of Joburg, whose members include businessman Atul Gupta and music executive Sipho
Mpofu at the weekend expressed disillusionment with the party he joined in 1980 at the height of apartheid, saying it was not the vehicle to deliver the economic freedom
ordinary South Africans need to improve their lot.
The ANC’s decision to adopt government’s National Development Plan at its elective conference in Mangaung, Free State, last December convinced him that the governing party
was heading towards “neoliberal” politics, he told City Press in an exclusive interview.
Advocate Mpofu,believed to be a close associate of former first lady Winnie Madikizela-Mandela, is also ex- chief executive officer of the South African Broadcasting
Corporation (SABC) who was reported to have received millions of rands when he was dismissed by the public broadcaster a few years ago.
