EFF members picketed outside the Embassy of the Kingdom of Morocco against what the party calls the illegal occupation of Western Sahara

jacarandafm.com.- EFF vows to remove Morocco from AU. The Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) says the Embassy of Morocco does not belong in South Africa.

EFF members picketed outside the Embassy of the Kingdom of Morocco in Pretoria on Thursday, against what the party calls the illegal occupation of Western Sahara.

The party’s secretary-general Godrich Gardee addressed supporters.

“They are oppressing our people. They are the new Europe that is colonizing African people. Their embassy does not belong in the soul of the people of South Africa. The EFF government is going to close this embassy come 2019 elections when we take over from the ANC.”

The Polisario Front in Western Sahara has been fighting for independence from Morocco since 1975.

Party leader Julius Malema was this week sworn in as a member of the Pan-Africanist Parliament, which is the legislative body of the African Union (AU).

Gardee told supporters that Morocco does not belong in the AU. Read more

We note with concern the violation of the basic human rights of Ms Claude Mangin Asfari and denial of her rights to a private and family life under International Humanitarian Law. Read more
