@NzingaQ: Dali Mpofu has left the ANC to join EFF after saying the ANC's neo-liberal policies worry him. He was a member of the ANC for 33 years.

@Keith_AM: Dali Mpofu must be smoking something

@Timelontswalony: @Noxy_Deep: Eh Dali Mpofu now wears a red beret. Next year's election should be interesting. Totally, the first time I look forward to it

@fanamokoena: I commend Dali Mpofu for standing by his own convictions. Few are brave enough to do so. Strong folk change things.

@Quibbie: True enough, Dali Mpofu is high-profile & topical currently, but he's just an ordinary ANC member.

@Siya_THATguy: Dali Mpofu is about to get SARS on his case. The SARS train is never late. Zuma is a good driver of that one
