Johannesburg – Businessman Kenny Kunene has quit his leadership positions in the newly-formed Economic Freedom Front with immediate effect, it was reported on Wednesday.
Kunene told The Star newspaper that he was resigning from his position on the central command team as well as his role as the head of campaigns, mobilisation and special projects, after “considering a lot of things”.
He added that there were still decisions to be made on the way forward.
“Obviously I’d like to see economic freedom being realised and I will remain an economic freedom fighter for ordinary people. The direction I am taking from now will determine if I will still be active in EFF,” he told The Star.
Kunene, known as the “Sushi King”, was seen as a crowd-pulling asset for former ANC Youth League leader Julius Malema’s new political party.
He said Malema had “accepted and respected” his resignation, and that be still believed the party has a future “even when I am not there”. – News24
