In a televised election debate, an EFF fighter asserted “we are the ANC” confusing many viewers and leaving ANC leaders in stitches of laughter. A clip of the debate was shared by ANC politician, Fikile Mbalula, and many users shared their views.
In response to a few users’ disbelief, one Twitter user, Thandanani Vundla, responded that he had been watching the full programme and the EFF fighter was not quoting an ANC politician but was simply confused.
Many found it hilarious and joked that on election day, the EFF fighters will need to be reminded not to vote for the ANC by mistake. “I see them forgetting, maybe they must write EFF in their hands just in case,” he remarked.

Another user, Ntsako Ngobeni felt that his mistake was simply love for the ANC and many users agreed that it was not easy to separate the party from the people.
Other users joked that he must have been paid to wear EFF regalia, Briefly.co.za found.
Trying to help make sense of the EFF man’s slip up, EFF supporters commented that he must still be a new member with still a little more to learn. Twitter user, Mike Masuluke, claimed that the man had been with the EFF for years and had previously been an ANC supporter.
Many users felt that there were probably a lot of die-hard ANC supporters who have joined parties like the EFF.
