EFF’s national spokesperson, Mbuyiseni Ndlozi, said EFF’s rise in KwaZulu-Natal (KZN) is faster than the speed of sound waves through air.
Ndlozi was addressing African News Agency (ANA) ahead of EFF leader Julius Malema’s three-day campaign in the province. He said the support the party has garnered from the province is exceedingly overwhelming.
EFF rise in KZN is “supersonic…In recent months, it has actually accelerated. KZN is the home of EFF,” he said.
According to him, there are several factors indicating that the party will do well in the province. “Of the 870 IEC wards, we have 825 active branches. But we leave it to the people to decide how much of the share of the vote to give us.”
Ndlozi said the EFF has 110 branches in the eThekwini region and divulged that the party will be contesting every municipality in KZN province. “we’ve invested in all areas,” he said.
The national spokesperson asserted that EFF’s strategy to win the upcoming local government elections in KZN is “simple”.
“We will make sure, through extensive door-to-door and community meetings, that we speak to as many voters as possible,” he added.
Explaining the rationale behind the door-to-door strategy he said; “we seek to do so because our people, when spoken to, will have a chance to truly make up their minds. Nothing sophisticated, we plan to physically speak to as many of our people as possible,” he iterated.
Many looked down on Malema and his EFF. Many believed it was idiotic of him to champion the EFF party after ANC kicked him out. He ought to have lobbied his way back to ANC and be a humble servant eager to respect the wishes of the ANC big shots.
Malema however believed in himself. He nurtured the now robust EFF. The party is set to take over KZN province.
