DURBAN - Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) supporters, after listening to party president Julius Malema’s address on Saturday afternoon, remain confident that he will deliver on all his promises if elected to power in the 2024 general elections.
The red berets launched their 2024 elections manifesto in Durban Saturday afternoon.
Malema focused the speech on land, jobs, infrastructure, as well as the ongoing water and electricity crisis.
Some people faithful to the EFF told Eyewitness News that Malema touched on issues affecting their daily lives.
While Malema this week said his manifesto would not feature promises but commitments, his speech on Saturday was peppered with promises.
Some of his supporters, like Vuyo Sibeko, believes Malema has what it takes to deliver on his promises.
“He wants to create a lot of jobs for people and for the land to be returned to the people, he ends load shedding, which has, by the way, killed many jobs.”
Sibeko believes the EFF is likely to grow its support by continuing to call for the expropriation of land without compensation and unemployment.
“When we are doing farming, we create jobs, many jobs, and sustainable jobs - that’s what I liked.”
Some of the EFF supporters also promised to go out in their numbers to vote for the EFF in the fast-approaching polls.
