“The soul of Fritz Joubert will never find peace” – EFF
By Zolile Mate
The Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) in the Buffalo City region are intending to expropriate and occupy Fritz Joubert’s Farm 348 in Brakfontein, East London. On Tuesday, the fighters invaded the house and conducted an asset evaluation of Joubert’s belongings.
They claim they will convert the property into a multi-use centre for community development and advancement.
“We learnt with great sadness about the senseless and gruesome killing of Anele Hoyana. We do not have room for racism in this country and we will confront it head-on,” said Thembinkosi Apleni, provincial deputy chairperson of the EFF. He was accompanied by at least 40 freedom fighters when they barged into Joubert’s house.
They accused the late Joubert of Jingoism and claim they want to crush it if it exists. They went on to call the deceased a monster.
The EFF wants to ensure that “the soul of Fritz Joubert will never find peace".
They intend to open a pre-school for children at these premises among other ‘socially beneficial’ uses.
They have begun the process of investigating how they can acquire the house at no charge.
