- The EFF had congratulated its Namibian twin for gaining more seats in the National Assembly
- The Namibian Economic Freedom Fighters managed to grow voter support and SA's Red Berets approve
- In a statement, Mzansi's EFF applauded its namesake for managing to overcome difficulties and secure their position
The EFF has congratulated the Namibian Economic Freedom Fighters for securing two more seats in Parliament.
Established in 2014, the party has been dubbed a 'direct ideological offspring' of the EFF by the party itself.
Commenting on the NEFF's election victory, the EFF voiced its approval for its ideals taking root in African nations:
“This is what should define all organisations and political formations in the continent and diaspora that define themselves as Economic Freedom Fighters. The Pan Africanist character of the EFF is veritably emboldened by the NEFF’s election into parliament.”
The EFF says its no 'secret' that the party would like to see Africa united and all borders dissolved in order to form a united continent.
However, the Red Berets made it clear that it's Namibian twin did not benefit from any financial support.
Meanwhile, a company which allegedly paid Julius Malema kickbacks before securing a R1.3 billion tender is in the spotlight.
Briefly.co.za reported that Afrirent is failing to keep up with the contract to supply the City of Johannesburg with vehicles.
The company has failed to meet deadlines, with the business previously responsible for the tender still needed to service the metro.
