Analysis What Mbetes conspiracy theory tells us about SAs changing foreign policy

Speaking to a sympathetic audience at the ANC’s North West provincial conference on Saturday, the ANC national chairperson and Speaker of the National Assembly lashed out at the “western governments” who she claims are driving the EFF’s agenda.

It was an extraordinary allegation in a generally extraordinary speech, in which she also described Julius Malema as a cockroach and implied that the government had been spying on EFF meetings.

“[The EFF] want to – in their words – collapse Parliament so they can force this country to an early election. They want to take this country so that they must take over the mines and share them with friends they were seen gallivanting with in Europe,” said Mbete, who seems to have fundamentally misunderstood the EFF’s land redistribution policy, which is surely far too radical for the comfort of any western government.
