Cape Town – DJ Euphonik, also known as Themba Mbongeni Nkosi, has applauded the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) for renaming its headquarters after the country’s struggle icon, Winnie Madikizela-Mandela.
The EFF unveiled its six-storey head office in central Johannesburg during its election manifesto launch last Sunday, on what would have been Winnie’s 85th birthday.
Attending the unveiling was Winnie’s daughter, Zenani Mandela-Dlamini, who thanked the EFF for the tribute.
“I would like to express how delighted we are as a family that you named your headquarters after my mother. Thank you very much.
“I flew all the way from the Republic of Korea to come and celebrate my mother’s birthday with you, and also to tell you how much we appreciate that the EFF leadership has never and will never forget my mother,” she said.
“Your actions speak directly to why she had so much time and respect for the EFF,” TimesLIVE quoted Mandela-Dlamini as saying.
Following the event, DJ Euphonik took to Twitter to post a picture of a plaque announcing the name change and wrote:
“Politics aside this is top tier!.”
