Speaking on Pretoria FM, head of the Orania movement Joost Strydom said the MEC was being held by the past.
“Orania’s response to empty criticism has always been to grow even faster, provide better services and look after our community more efficiently,” said Strydom.
He said Lesufi’s only input was to criticise the town’s success.
“However, we do not see he is successful in addressing any of the education challenges in his province,” Strydom said.
This is not the first time Lesufi has called for an end to the Afrikaner town in the Karoo region of the Northern Cape.
Last year, he called for the town to fall, saying it goes against inclusivity and democracy.
“We understand why that institution was established. It has lived its time now. That place must be liberated and all South Africans must be allowed to stay wherever they want to stay.
“We don’t say we want to stay with them but you can’t have an institution that is established based on language or on the colour of skin,” said Lesufi.
He also called for the town’s “madness” to end, saying: “If you think we will keep quiet you are wrong. This madness must come to an end. It’s a betrayal of our call for a truly nonracial SA.”
