A footage of an EFF rally which gradually turned from a political fanfare to a romantic gathering has continued to make the rounds after it resurfaced on the internet.
The video footage of the romantic display which got everyone talking had gone viral after it was published on Youtube.
EFF’s national spokesperson Mbuyensi Ndlozi took to Twitter on Friday and re-posted the video with the title: “#ThrowBack – #TheLoveRevolution. After spending 2 years of wrongful imprisonment, Fighter Lesole proposed marriage to his lover.”
In the video, Fighter Lesole was seen kneeling and proposing to his girlfriend in the full view of other fighters.
Amid shouting and clapping ovation, the fighter asked the young woman, who was overwhelmed with shyness if she will marry him.
And shortly after she gave the yes answer, the fighter slowly slipped the ring into her hands, as other fighters cheered the lovers on with shouting ovation.
The video also captured the presence of the EFF Commander-in-Chief Julius Malema, his deputy Floyd Shivambu and other EFF members.
On February 24, the EFF celebrated the return of Lesole and former North West EFF chief whip Papiki Babuile after 2 years imprisonment. The murder conviction against the two and others was overturned by the Gauteng South High Court after an appeal process.
Babuile was sentenced to 12 years imprisonment by the North Gauteng High Court sitting in Stilfontein outside Klerksdorp in the North West for the murder of David Chika‚ regional secretary of the African National Congress.
He was slapped with eight years imprisonment for conspiracy to commit murder and subsequently jailed in 2014. Bubuile was an ANC Youth League chairperson at the time the crime was committed.
Another suspect, Sihlangu Sikhakhane, who is believed to have pulled the trigger, was sentenced to life imprisonment and acquitted of conspiracy to commit murder.
Chika was shot and killed at his house in Alabama, Klerksdorp, on December 14, 2012, just two days before the ANC elective conference that brought President Zuma to power.
Malema described the judgment is a political vindication of the party’s long-held position and a demonstration of its ideological dishonesty to the black emancipation struggle.
