Johannesburg - Businessman Kenny Kunene has resigned as a member of the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF), the party said on Monday.
“The central command team found him a very great person to work with, and so did many in the rank and file,” spokesman Mbuyiseni Ndlozi said in a statement.
“We were particularly impressed by his charisma, fearlessness, and wisdom to dissect complex challenges.”
Last Wednesday the party denied reports that Kunene had resigned.
“Kunene has not left the party... he has asked to be relieved of his leadership responsibilities,” Ndlozi said at the time.
