The EFF has an election weapon
L Tembe KwaZulu-Natal Broe Juju [Julius Malema] is right when he calls the manifesto of the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) a weapon. It is the party’s plan to win elections and remove the corrupt government. Nelson Mandela called education a weapon to fight poverty. George Mahamotsa Mpumalanga It’s politically correct. The ANC defies the law and uses votes to govern. A manifesto is a weapon to lure voters. At least the EFF is doing things differently. Tholi Malibe Mpumalanga Service delivery is what our people yearn for. Therefore, the EFF’s manifesto is indeed the right weapon. Thobeka Ntshobane Eastern Cape Yes, I will vote for the EFF, because I think it will make a bigger difference than the ANC. I hope the EFF will provide us with jobs, because I have been trying to find work as a nurse since 2014. MP Vilakazi Free State Yes, it is a weapon for visible and sustained improvement of the lives of the people and to finally eliminate corruption. ME Moatshe Gauteng Yes, Malema uses common words and phrases that ordinary people understand. Referring to the manifesto as a gun is correct because it empowers local people, who feel they have a say in their affairs. The ANC, on the other hand, speaks exile politics, which people don’t know and understand. Sello Pretoria I will be voting for Juju. The ANC has stopped respecting us. Jacob Zuma has failed the people of Mzansi. Corruption is rampant, service delivery has stalled and taxpayers support his many wives. I can’t handle his arrogance any more. Paul Umhlanga The EFF is an ill-disguised incitement to violence. Hendrick Malemone Gauteng Yes, the manifesto is a weapon to live and abide by. It protects, guides, leads and coordinates between the party and the society at large. Lerato Gauteng I have been a staunch ANC supporter from a young age. Since 1994, I have never felt the need for an alternative government, until now. The EFF is definitely getting my vote. Cliffy Booysen Gauteng Yes, I’m voting for the EFF. I’ve been in the ANC for a number of years, but the short and sweet is that Jacob Zuma is a dunderhead. If anybody still believes in him, God help us. Dumi Tshabalala Gauteng I will never vote for a party, like the EFF, that belongs to an individual. I’ll vote for a people’s party, like the ANC. For your information, the ANC does not belong to President Zuma. However you sugar-coat it, the EFF belongs to Malema. Period. Duke Moche Gauteng The EFF’s manifesto is relevant to its targeted voters, who live in townships and rural areas. By the way, Malema delivered the best speech on April 30. Mandela and Thabo Mbeki can’t match him. Magaya Eastern Cape I’d vote EFF because they confront the real issues on the ground. For more than 20 years, the ANC has not found a formula to the land question. The EFF is listening to the masses. We hear that the president has lodged his land claim for the area north of KwaZulu-Natal, a sign of self-centredness. The EFF is clear on corruption, while the ANC has created institutions that must protect its corrupt leaders. The EFF brings hope for the future of our children, when we are no longer alive, while the ANC is selling out this country.
