DURBAN - The Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) say they're leaving nothing to chance on Saturday morning as it prepares to woo KwaZulu-Natal voters at the polls in the coming months.
Scores of supporters are expected to descend on Durban to fill the 58,000-seater Moses Mabhida Stadium in a show of force by the red berets.
This is where the party is expected to outline a five-year plan of how it plans to govern, should it be elected into power.
The EFF is again expected to turn its attention to its radical economic policies, including promises of access to jobs and the economy.
Party chairperson Veronica Mente said the party’s 2024 manifesto would stick to the party's seven cardinal pillars.
“If you understand the EFF from the founding manifesto, we’re a socialist movement and everything that we do, we do for the people. Our manifesto started from consultation processes. It is not a manifesto that was drafted from air-conditioned offices by us, as leadership. It’s the manifesto of the people. Therefore, we are here to commit to the people to say, we are going to respond to you on the day after elections.”
The EFF is the first of the country’s big three parties in Parliament to launch its manifesto, with the African National Congress and the Democratic Alliance expected to follow later in February.
