EFF on campaign trail in Eastern Cape

Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) national chairperson, Dali Mpofu has taken his party’s campaign to the Eastern Cape ahead of the August 3rd elections.

He started his campaign in Zwelitsha near King William’s Town where he received a warm welcome from members of the party.

The EFF is confident that it will do better in the upcoming elections as compared to how it did in the province in 2014.

As the August 3rd elections draw closer the campaign on the ground becomes crucial.

The EFF says people, in particular young people, are waiting for the party to take the reins and provide the much needed economic freedom.

But dedication from local leaders will determine the amount of trust people have in the EFF.

‘We have come here mainly to encourage our forces on the ground because it is them that are going to deliver the victory for the EFF when they go door to door- the visibility campaigns using the manifesto that we’ve launched as their bible. We are finding that on the ground people are very, very keen as they want to see the EFF,” says Mpofu.

Mpofu also took his campaign to the poverty stricken informal settlements in Duncan Village in East London.
