EFF Eastern Cape provincial manifesto launch

The Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) say they are ready to take over the Eastern Cape and unlock economic opportunities for the millions of jobless youths.

Many young people turned up at the Buffalo City stadium in East London on Thursday to be part of the EFF’s provincial manifesto launch. See pictures below:

“Young people of the province are standing up and occupying their rightful places in the province. That is why all these people are here, they want jobs and land. And they want to end load shedding,” says Zilindile Vena the EFF chairperson in the Eastern Cape.

Vena says if the party wins the majority votes in the province, it will unlock economic opportunities for the youth “Young people now are agitated, doctors are unemployed,” he said.

“Our children are not employed, I want to hear, what is going to be done in order for them to work,” said pensioner Mzimasi Yem to SABC News.

Yem said: “What will be done in order to do away with criminality because criminals are kicking old people’s home doors, who are also selling drugs to our youth.”.

Party supporters say they hope to hear decisive plans from the party president Julius Malema about the increasing crime levels in the province.

“Our manifesto, is a manifesto of hope to the people of uMdantsane, a manifesto of hope to all those parents who lost their children who fell into pit toilets, this is a message of hope to all children who attend mud schools in the Eastern Cape,” said EFF leader Julius Malema.

“Comrades, today you are here to tell everybody that freedom is coming tomorrow on the 29th of May,” Malema affirmed to the crowd of supporters.
