The politician, whose party has often slammed the broadcaster, put on a suit and his brightest smile to discuss some of the biggest news stories of the day.
EFF spokesperson Mbuyiseni Ndlozi had people glued to their TV screens on Monday when he was a guest host on eNCA’s As It Happened.
He not only read the news but also had an engaging debate with Peter Bruce on land expropriation and had a live Q&A.
Other politicians that will take over the show this week include the Democratic Alliance’s Natasha Mazzone, the United Democratic Movement’s Bantu Holomisa, African National Congress’ Pule Mabe and the Inkatha Freedom Party’s Lisa van Merwe.
But, yoh, The People’s Bae did the most and had viewers rushing for the land with his comments.
Here are just four comments that gave the internet life:
“Today I’m your host in this white monopoly capitalism platform”
Ndlozi came straight out the gate to label the broadcaster a “white monopoly capitalism platform” and had the Twitter streets howling.

“Love without justice is evil”
This was the moment The People’s Bae became The People’s Poet 2.0. Ndlozi ended a touching sermon on abuse by telling women to always remember “love without justice is evil”. We died.

“Where is your source?”
In a conversation with Peter Bruce about his column in which he claimed that only a tiny minority of black people want to farm, Ndlozi hit Bruce with a young “where is your source?” He later returned with a strong clap back, declaring ” I could disagree, but I should have the correct sources.”

“Even when you’re reading there, you not reading them properly”
Ndlozi delivered a smackdown when he dropped in a line while Bruce was looking at his notes. With a smile on his face, he said: “even when you’re reading there, you not reading them properly”.
