Victoria Mente, an EFF MP from the Western Cape, is the new chairperson, replacing Dali Mpofu, who declined nomination for this position. Mente was a lawyer in Khayelitsha, volunteering for the Labour Community Advice Media and Education Centre, assisting workers to claim their rights. She became an MP in 2014.
She speaks to SABC News reporter Manqoba Mchunu in Nasrec, Johannesburg, where the EFF’s second elective conference is held.
