Kenny Kunene has announced he will be leaving his “army of women” and “life of sushi” behind him in order to pursue a life of politics

“I am like Paul, who use to be Saul, but saw the light on his way to Damascus”.

Kunene will be joining expelled ANC Youth League Leader Julius Malema’s Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF)

He tweeted that as a member and a revolutionary cadre of the Economic Freedom Fighters Movement he hopes to make it a force to be reckoned with and to contest the next election.

In an open letter to president Jacob Zuma last month, Kunene accused him of being heartless and controlled by the Gupta Family.

The letter read “in public you smile and laugh but in truth you behave like a monster, a tyrant who will target perceived enemies ruthlessly and because of that fear, few dare speak openly”

The City Press reported, Jackson Mthemba, the ANC spokesperson said the governing party views “such statements as disrespectful, distasteful and insulting to the person of the president and the ANC”

In todays letter Kunene said the ANC could attack him but the fact is that attacking the people who criticise  you does not make the criticism they make about you disappears

Economic Freedom Fighters movement was formed by Malema, Kunene and the forum’s spokesperson Floyd Shivamba who have been close allies.

Kunene wrote that the reason for joining  the EFF is that “the majority of people I  have interacted with are telling me we need an alternative voice in the country that will be revolutionary” he further wrote that the EFF is a better voice of South Africans who are fed up with living without hope that things will ever change for the better he said.
