The Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) in KwaZulu-Natal have refuted allegations of attacking and assaulting former Ukhozi FM presenter Ngizwe Mchunu, dismissing the accusations as another attempt by the “Nhlanhla Lux project” to generate political controversy.

EFF provincial communicator Maswi Blose addressed the allegations, expressing disdain for the rumors circulating on social media without substantiated evidence. Blose emphasized that the EFF was not involved in the reported attack on Ngizwe Mchunu, drawing parallels with a previous incident involving Nhlanhla Lux, who claimed that the EFF bombed his house.

Ngizwe Mchunu recently filed a case of assault against individuals who attacked him during a media briefing in Durban. A video of the incident, now viral, shows a group of men disrupting the proceedings by dragging and kicking chairs, tables, and cameras. Allegations suggest that the individuals were affiliated with the EFF.

The media briefing was intended to provide a resolution on the program’s status on February 10 at Moses Mabhida Stadium, where the EFF plans to hold a manifesto as part of its election campaign leading up to the 2024 general elections.

Earlier this month, Mchunu had threatened to prevent EFF leader Julius Malema from holding a rally in KZN, vowing that it would happen over his dead body. Mchunu accused Malema of influencing JAC Motors in KZN to withdraw his sponsored vehicle, while the dealership cited Mchunu’s “tribalistic” remarks against Malema as the reason for ending the sponsorship. Malema has denied involvement in any discussions with the car dealership regarding the sponsorship withdrawal.
