However, the Economic freedom fighters from South Africa has released a statement about how they feel about the queen’s death.
EFF stated,”The Economic freedom fighters notes the death Elizabeth Alexandra Mary Windsor, the queen of the United Kingdom, and the ceremonial head of state of several countries that were colonized by the United Kingdom. Elizabeth ascended to the throne in 1952, reigning for 70 years as a head of an institution built up, sustained and living off a brutal legacy of dehumanization of millions of people across the world.”
EFF further stated that they will not mourn the death of Queen Elizabeth II because South Africa suffered under her regime.
EFF said,”We do not mourn the death of Elizabeth, because to us her death is a reminder of a very tragic period in this country and Africa’s history. Britain, under the leadership of the royal family, took over control of this territory that would become South Africa in 1795 from Butavian control and took permanent control of the territory in 1806. From that moment onwards , native people of this land have never known peace, nor have they ever enjoyed the fruits of the riches of this country, riches which were and still are utilized for the enrichment of the British royal family and those who look like them.”

They added, “ During her 70 year reign as queen, she never once acknowledge the atrocities that her family inflicted on native people that Britain invaded across the world. She willingly benefited from the wealth that was attained from the exploitation and murder of millions of people across the world. The British Royal Family stands on the shoulders of millions of slaves who were shipped away from the continent to serve the interests of racist white capital accumulation, at the center of which lies the British Royal family.”
