Gospel star Lundi joins EFF


It is now red, thanks to politics of the stomach.
Sunday World has learned that the award-winning muso, who has been a staunch supporter of the ANC, has now joined the Economic Freedom Fighter (EFF).
Lundi was not available for comment at the time of going to press.
But his manager Anele Hlazo confirmed the gospel artist was part of the red beret brigade.
"He has not signed any membership documents yet but he is a supporter of the EFF. We cannot comment on the ANC issue because he has not told us anything about it," he said.
Hlazo said Lundi joined the EFF because the party's boss Julius Malema buttressed him.
"Lundi was never booked to perform at ANC or DA events, not because he didn't want to, but because he was sidelined. The EFF has been the only organisation that gave him gigs and been there for him," he said.
ANC spokesman Zizi Kodwa wished Lundi good luck.
"We can only wish him good luck. That's all we can say," he said.
EFF spokesman Mbuyiseni Ndlozi said: "Lundi performed at the EFF rally wearing an EFF T-shirt, so talk to him. What I can say is that it is unfortunate that artists can be victimised for performing at rallies organised by opposition parties. That shows how immature and anti-cultural freedom the ANC can be."
Two EFF officials, who cannot be named because they are not allowed to speak to the media, confirmed Lundi has finally joined the organisation after two years of negotiations.
"EFF is the new home for him and we are happy to have him in our structures," said the official.
Another official said: "He has finally woken up and smelt the coffee just like other artists who have joined us."
Tina Dlangwana and Sechaba Pali are among other musicians who joined the nascent organisation.
