The EFF has an elec­tion weapon

CityPress - - Voices -

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.
