Steenhuisen speaks on behalf of white capitalist-Shivambu

“He’s speaking on behalf of the white capitalist establishment and too shy to say it. Trapped like a wizard at night,” Shivambu said.

The deputy president of the Economic Freedom Fighters Floyd Shivambu claimed on Thursday that DA leader John Steenhuisen was speaking “on behalf of the white capitalist establishment”, following his calls for the national Covid-19 lockdown to end “swiftly”.

Shivambu’s comment comes after Steenhuisen appeared to have lost his “temper” during an interview with the SABC on Thursday.

During the interview, Steenhuisen said DA’s court action follows discussions he had been having with fed-up South Africans who want the lockdown to be eased which also prompted some responses from social media users including former DA leader Mmusi Maimane.

“You can see the white supremacy, racism and irritation in the attitude, tone and response of little John when trapped in his own lies,” he said.

The EFF deputy president went on claim that Steenhuisen was “trapped like a wizard at night” following his reaction.

“He’s speaking on behalf of the white capitalist establishment and too shy to say it. Trapped like a wizard at night,” Shivambu said.
