Economic Freedom Fighters’ Commander-in-Chief, Julius Malema expressed his appreciation and gratitude to South Africans, for supporting the EFF’s manifesto launch.
The leader also shared a video of an adorable young girl singing that the time for kids to play is over, and that the elders must dance, perhaps summing up the mood of EFF supporters around Mzansi.
Juju thanked Mzansi for their support, before giving a “special thanks” to the EFF “ground forces and all commissars”. He added,”it feels good to be an African” and announced that the next part of the campaign, will be door-to-door campaigning, Briefly.co.za learned.
The EFF launched their manifesto last weekend at Soshanguve Giant Stadium in Pretoria.
The party made a number of bold statements, promising to improve social conditions in the country, as Briefly.co.za reported earlier.
South Africans took Juju’s tweet as an opportunity to share their last-minute thoughts about the party and their launch.
While some comments were supporters still relishing in the pride of having had a successful launch, others just wanted to express their doubts about the party.
Some Twitter users commented that the opposition between the EFF and the ruling party, is Like David and Goliath, particularly noting that the 6-year-old party was competing with the 107-year-old giants.
Godfrey Zihlwele wrote that he was not an EFF supporter but praised the party on their attitudes towards issues experiened by disabled people.
Lungelo Mabanga expressed that Juju’s speech made him feel proud to be an african and brught people one step closer to eradicating self-hate with his party’s stance on pan-Africanism and immigration.
Some South Africans, however, felt differently and sused the thread to express some of their concerns with Juju’s speech.
Themba Mathebule qustioned the rationale behind his “ill-informed attack” against the new National Director of Public Prosecutors (NDPP).
Others felt that the maifesto was just a list of dreams with practical means of implementation.
