EFF accuses ANC of political intolerance
ANC's Jackson Mthembu says the allegations against his party are malicious.
JOHANNESBURG - The Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) has accused the ANC of political intolerance after a marquee belonging to the party was petrol bombed in Thokoza on Gauteng's East Rand allegedly by ANC members.
The EFF had prepared for a rally at the Sam Ntuli Stadium on Saturday before their tent, stage, sound system and chairs were set alight, hours before the party's Gauteng premier candidate Dali Mpofu, could deliver a planned address.
Police have confirmed they are investigating a case of arson but no suspects have been identified.
ANC spokesperson Jackson Mthembu says the allegations against members of his party are malicious.
"Our worry is the EFF has made this general statement saying it's the ANC and that refers to every ANC member."
Meanwhile, EFF leader Julius Malema told scores of his supporters at a rally in Kliptown in Soweto on Sunday that the ANC died with Nelson Mandela.
Malema slated the Zuma-led ANC saying he has turned the ruling party into the "African National Criminals".
