EFF has be commended on raising these issues below, which the working clss reps and communists should have been raising: Economic Freedom Fighters statement on the South African Revenue Services presentation to the standing committee on finance: 02 July 2014 On Wednesday, the 2nd of July 2014, the South African Revenue Services (SARS) made presentation of its strategic vision and plan to the Parliamentary Standing Committee on Finance. As part of its presentation and typical of many South African public institutions, SARS claimed easy victories concerning its record on revenue collection, which is its primary mission. At the end of the SARS Presentation, the Chairperson of the standing committee on finance attempted to coerce the committee to agree that SARS is overall doing very well and should be applauded for the work done so far. The Economic Freedom Fighters objected to this notion and narrative, because we strongly believe that SARS is dismally failing to collect maximum revenue from the private sec ...

Johannesburg - The EFF national leadership has condemned what it calls the violent and undemocratic decision of the ANC Speaker to remove its members from the Gauteng legislature. "During the debate on the State of the Province, the speaker of the Gauteng legislature, Ntombi Mekgwe, called police to remove Economic Freedom Fighters members from parliament because they were dressed in worker clothes," spokesperson Mbuyiseni Ndlozi said in a statement on Tuesday. "In effect, a member of the legislature in the form of the Speaker has ordered other honourable members to be violated by the police because they were dressed in worker clothes as opposed to the elite suits." Ndlozi said Megkwe should be ashamed of herself as she was an embarrassment to the "democratic house of the people". EFF members were asked to leave the legislature for wearing red overalls with the word "Asijiki" (we will not go back) written on them. The Times Live reported that Mekgwe said the EFF's red overalls were deemed inappropriate be ...
The EFF comes out with all guns blazing and bang on target as the ANC resorts to confusion and insult, says Eusebius McKaiser. Johannesburg - Julius Malema was very impressive last week in Parliament. ANC comrades were not. It’s worth reflecting on what happened, and why the ANC is clearly shaken and stirred. It is too soon to have a firm overall view of the performance of the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) in Parliament. Only after enough parliamentary activity has taken place can we *** whether they get the business of parliamentary oversight, and the crucial but arduous task of crafting the best possible laws. But we had our first sighting when the EFF responded to President Jacob Zuma’s State of the Nation Address last week. And they did very well. EFF leader Julius Malema delivered an excellent response. I was sceptical; I thought he wouldn’t. I was proved wrong. If I had a beret, I’d eat part of it and keep the rest for a more final decision about the EFF after enough time has passed. Th .. ...
Deputy Dean of the School of Law at Wits University Mtende Mhango says Economic Freedom Fighters leader Julius Malema's right to freedom of expression is protected by the Constitution. Mhango claims there was nothing unparliamentary about Malema's remarks. "That statement was constitutionally protected, if Julius Malema was talking about issues around insightment of violence or hatred or what a certain group of people, or talking propagating war then clearly that could be prohibited speech but I think that the language that he used there's nothing unconstitutional about it." On Thursday, Malema was asked to leave Parliament after accusations he made during his speech in the State of the Nation debate that the ANC government had massacred 34 miners at Marikana in 2012. NCOP chair, Thandi Modise, ruled that the remarks were unparliamentary. She has subsequently said that the EFF risks Parliamentary sanction. Modise said that while freedom of speech was allowed in Parliament, it was subject to limitations im ...

S’AFRICAN PRESIDENT SCARED OF WHITES — MALEMA Radical South African lawmaker Julius Malema delivered a blistering attack on President Jacob Zuma in his maiden address to parliament on Wednesday, accusing him of being “extremely scared of white people”, AFP reports. Dressed in red overalls and Wellington boots, Malema called on the president to seize white-owned lands without compensation, nationalise the mines and banks, and tear down statues of white colonisers. “You lack courage and have sold out the revolution,” the leader of the Economic Freedom Fighters told a stony-faced Zuma in his response to the president’s state of the Nation Address Tuesday. Malema has explained previously that he and his lawmakers wear the Wellington boots favoured by many workers to prove they represent the poor. Malema formed the EFF last year after being thrown out as youth leader of Zuma’s ruling African National Congress, and led his party to win 25 parliamentary seats in May 7 elections. His direct verbal ...
Toe gryp hulle mekaar letterlik 20 Jun 2014 The Economic Freedom Fighters’ struggle for land is taking on a more personal tone after EFF commissar on land, Andile Mngxitama, and the Freedom Front’s Pieter Groenewald had to be restrained after a near fistfight outside the National Assembly this afternoon. Inside the House, EFF leader Julius Malema was called to order after he repeatedly interjected during Pieter Mulder’s speech, shouting “Bring back our land. You stole our land. Ons soek die plaas.” An impatient chairperson of the House, Thandi Modise, in warning Malema ended up saying: “Honourable Malema, don’t push me!” But matters got out of hand during the short break in the afternoon session. Groenewald walked past Mngxitama, who was standing outside eating. He went up to Mngxitama, pointing his finger, and touched him on the chest while trying to say something. Before he could say anything, Mngxitama shouted: “Don’t touch me! Don’t f***ing touch me. You stole our land and we wan ...
Johannesburg - An advertisement making reference to Julius Malema's EFF was not meant to scare people into selling their houses and leaving the country, a property company said on Thursday. "The reason for putting it there was to poke fun at people who were scared of the 'swart gevaar' [black threat]... and Julius Malema," chief executive of Western Cape property company Vineyards Estates, Anton du Plessis, told Sapa. "My message to them was 'guys wake up', you better get with the programme." He said many people living in the areas where Vineyards Estates operated thought the country would go into decline when someone like Malema entered Parliament. The company's areas of expertise were the affluent areas of Bishop's Court, Newlands, Claremont, Kenilworth, Wynberg, and Rondebosch in Cape Town. "The angle of the advertisement was if you are thinking of leaving then get hold of me and I will sell your house," Du Plessis said. The advert had been placed in the property section of the Sunday Times. It had a p ...

Full Speech of Commissar Andile Mngxitama in response to SONA 19 July 2014 Hon speaker, CIC and hon members. 1. First act promulgated by the first democratic parliament in 1994 was the Land Restitution Act. It was not a mistake because land is EVERYTHING! It defines who we are? Gives us life and takes us back when we die. 2) The president spoke abt dates of closure and opening of the claims process. Truth is our country doesn't have a land redistribution policy. Only 8% of land bought in 20 years(for almost R50 billion!). 1 million farm workers evicted since 1994. ANC promised 30% by 2014! It will take us abt 100 years to buy back the promised 30%! 3. President Zuma promised 1 million jobs in agriculture by 2030! Farm workers are slave, president you want to increase slavery on farms? Free farm workers let's give them land! Let's free farm workers let's give them a living wage R5000 minimum montly salary. Why not? 4. There is no food security in SA. If borders were closed for two weeks we shall starve! A ...
Persverklaring / Press Release 19 Junie 2014 Front National Challenges EFF leader to speak out in public / Front Nasionaal daag EFF leier om uitlatings in die openbaar te herhaal. Front National wishes to express their serious objection to the statements made by the leader of the Economic Freedom Fighters, mr Julius Malema, in the national Parliament on 18 June 2014. Since the moment of his arrival in Parliament after the May 7th elections, mr Malema expressed his lack of respect for the institutions of democracy and the Parliament by the way the representatives of the party dresses for Parliamentary sessions and in the way in which Mr Malema, in his speech, addressed the Speaker. Front National respects democracy and the standing of the National Parliament and seriously objects to the public display of disregard being made of it. Further to this, Mr Malema’s degrading statements regarding white South Africans and their linguistic capabilities borders on hate speech. To say that white people who does no ...
Full Speech of fighter Khanyisile Tshabalala in Response to the SONA in Parliament 19 June 2014 Hon. Speaker Hon. Pres. of the Republic Honourable Members The power of white monopoly capital to dispossess, oppress and exploit Black people, especially Africans, cannot be overstated, especially in instances, of a willing conscious ally in the form of an African government. In the words of one of the largest white monopoly capitalists, Amschel Rothschild, founder of the House of Rothschild, capital does indeed run politics, and he makes no apology to that. He said, and I quote, “Let me issue and control a nation’s money and I care not who writes the laws.” Honourable Speaker, the weight of what was said back in the eighteenth century, continues to hold true today, for what Amschel Rothschild was insinuating is that the law-makers of a state are kept at ransom by those who issue and control its money, simply because the dictates and wants of capital are directly opposed to those of the poor people… In ...

Economic Freedom Fighters' leader Julius Malema has turned Parliament into a circus, the Christian Democratic Party said
Provincial ANC secretary Lucky Ndinisa told City Press two weeks ago that the decision to redeploy Mashilo was brought about by the ANC’s poor performance in the Nkangala region during the elections. Ndinisa said after election results were analysed, it was clear that the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) had a strong showing in Nkangala where it got 41 000 of its 83 589 total votes in the province. The EFF got 6.26% votes in Mpumalanga. Ndinisa said former Mbombela mayor Cathy Dlamini had been redeployed to the NCOP for the same reason. In Mbombela, the EFF got 4.75% of the vote.

From the Draft constitution ya Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) I learn that the EEF Youth League age bracket is 14-25 years as prescribed by the United Nations (UN) model, and not 15-35 years as prescribed by African Union (AU) model. I think its a well calculated move, Based on general and average age group of its leadership; using the AU model puts them at risk of having Youth League leaders being older than the Central Committee leadership.

*JOUNALISTS BA ITSE GO TSAMEKA KA SKGOA YONA* New kid on the political block, the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) has reportedly fallen victim to the political infighting that all too often accompanies the first taste of power. According to a report in the Mail & Guardian (M&G) a number of EFF members have spoken out about dictatorial tendencies in the party after a nationwide restructuring saw critics of party leader, Julius Malema, removed from key positions.

September National Imbizo Statement On EFF Public Representatives Using Public Services Over the past few days we have heard criticism on what some call a capitulation by the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) on the call for public representatives to use public services. The September National Imbizo (SNI) wishes to put this matter in perspective. As a Sankarist movement we are proud and unashamed of our principled position, which has also found resonance in the EFF, that public representatives should use public services. This position was developed after carefully studying the way the ruling elite has traditionally abused their power under neo liberalism so as to secure their own interests at the expense of the impoverished majority especially in relation to the provision of public services.This call by SNI, which was embraced and adopted by the EFF, was never a call for public representatives to act out of charity for the poor by using public services. It was instead a revolutionary call to ensure speedy ...
We encourage fighters to familiarize themselves with the constitution of the Economic Freedom Fighters.

"CAPITALISM gives hopes and dreams to the POOR, and ways and means to the CAPITAL". After 20yrs of the theories of FREEDOM, we find our people losing hope and wondering if this theory of FREEDOM will ever be practical to them as majorities of our people. It make sense that people are sceptic about possibilities of their true FREEDOM simply because up to today when you listen to "THEM" speaking about freedom of association, you will see that of couse CAPITAL can afford and poorman can't, poorman is chained by chains of Economy. We listen to them when they tell a man who slept with an empty stomach that he has a Freedom to go wherever he want, how possible because this man is chained with Economical chain. Who didn't hear when they tell a child who walked 10km to a school in a village where there are no resouses, that he has a FREEDOM to GO and study at a better school in a city more than 100km from the boy's village? All this FRREDOMS will be meaningful to our people only if we can break the Chains of Ec . ...

(Gordon) Take back the land - Juju 2014-06-02 Economic Freedom Fighters leader Julius Malema has offered to support the ANC if it tables a bill calling for land expropriation without compensation. "It must come, we will vote for it," he said. "We want to expropriate without compensation. If the ANC puts a motion to expropriate the stolen land without compensation, we will vote with it." Malema was speaking to journalists yesterday at parliament, where he named the EFF MPs who will lead the party in the National Assembly. Floyd Shivambu will be the party's chief whip. Malema said the EFF would not oppose "for the sake of opposing". It was willing to support "even" the DA if it tried to have President Jacob Zuma removed. Malema had been asked whether his party would support the controversial Expropriation Bill, which gives the state powers to seize property before compensation is paid and without the owner's agreement. The EFF wants land to be expropriated without compensation. By contrast, the Expropriatio ...
EFF APPROVES OF MINISTER OF HEALTH USING A PUBLIC HOSPITAL & WILL WORK TOWARDS MAKING THE USAGE OF PUBLIC SERVICES BY PUBLIC REPRESENTATIVES COMPULSORY 14 August 2013 Economic Freedom Fighters approves the fact that the Minister of Health is admitted at the Steve Biko Academic Hospital, which is a public hospital. EFF approves because one of our fundamental principles and policy position is that all elected Public representatives should use public services and institutions. All the public representatives in all the Legislatures and Parliaments of South Africa, including those in government will use public institutions and services, particularly schools and heath care. We believe that such is one of the means that will make public representatives take their mandates and work seriously in improving the quality of these services. Above all this is a statement of confidence on the services government provides to the public. EFF does not approve of the low quality of many hospitals and healthcare facilities in ...
NEVER TRUST A POLITICIAN ECONOMIC Freedom Fighters leader Julius Malema has gone back on his word not to take the perks that come with being a member of parliament. This is despite the fact that the party said during the run-up to the elections that it would not accept such perks if voted into parliament. The perks include state houses, medical aid and free flights. “If we come into parliament where houses are being provided for members of parliament and then we decide not to go and stay in those houses, [that would be] wasteful expenditure because there would be empty houses unoccupied by members of the EFF even when government has paid,” said Malema. “That would be irresponsible,” he added
Subject: FW: A DRASTIC STATEMENT BY AN EFF MP - 27 May 14 A letter by Andile Mngxitama who is now an EFF Member of Parliament.. Zimbabwe here we come, sooner than what we may think. Awaken from your slumber folks, start becoming ‘preppers’ and make sure that your families have sufficient supplies of food and water (see comment at end). A dramatic change of season is on the way in South Africa. The EFF has a message for all who continue to trade on the spoils of colonial battles. You’re buying stolen land, Mr Branson. The EFF tells Richard Branson that his purchase of a 40ha farm in Franschhoek is illegal and that it might be repossessed. “Dear Mr Branson, My name is Andile Mngxitama. I am the Economic Freedom Fighters’ (EFF’s) commissar for land and agrarian revolution. Our movement got 1.1-million votes in the recently held elections in South Africa and will be represented in Parliament, with the real prospect of becoming the government in our lifetime.

WHY I LIKE THE ECONOMIC FREEDOM FIGHTERS. They do not handpick people on tribal lines and other skewed criterias to be Personal Assistants and other positions within the movement. They advertise every opportunity. Secondly, The EFF as it is commonly known has a scholarship program for its youthful members for further studies so that upon completion they shud come back and serve the party in positions of authority. I am yet to see, if we can borrow a leaf from these guys. Visit their Face Book Pages and see the level of openness. Elsewhere, relatives and children of influential people are the only ones who make it, when scholarships are advertised and when PA's and other positions are advertised
President Jacob Zuma and his team must be audited immediately. How can they forget to carry out a background check of the National Prosecuting Authority head, Mxolisi Nxasana before his appointment? No wonder why Economic Freedom Fighters Chief in Commander, Julius Malema calls him a scapegoat.
June, the youth month. We remember the militant n radical youth of 1976. The Soweto uprising, they decided that enough is enough. They fought for our freedom. I pledge to wear anything that will remind us of their bravery everyday for the whole month. Today, here we are still fighting for the economic freedom, they fought for political freedom, lets not betray their bravery. its not gonna be an easy road but together we can make them proud. I know for sure that they are looking down on us n smiling at all the economic freedom fighters. Aluta!
If the ECONOMIC FREEDOM FIGHTERS become very strong to an extend that it becomes a government in waiting, I'm telling you, the Ashkenazi Jewish-Anglo Connection will betray the Boers (the so-called "Afrikaners") and will also cut off their secret network with the ANC... Bear in mind that after the Anglo-Boer Wars, there was a secret deal between the Ashkenazi Jewish-Anglo Connection and Boers that resulted in our land and wealth being splat into two: The Boers got the farming land, whilst the Ashkenazi Jewish-Connection got the coroprate sector and the finance and banking sector... When the ANC adopted the PAN AFRIKANIST AGENDA in 1944, mostly advocated by Anton Muziwakhe Lembede, the Ashkenazi Jews, led by the Rothschilds family, were unhappy, as a result they devised a plan that the ANC should be hijacked under the guise of communism. The Ashkenazi Jews pushed the South African Communist Party to form an aliance with the ANC. It is this alliance that diluted the ANC, and made it (the ANC) to betray the ...
The Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) says the families of three children who died in Bloemhof in the North West must take legal action against the provincial government. The infants aged between seven and 13 months have died in the past few days due to dehydration and kidney failure resulting from diarrhoea The EFF in the North West says the provincial government has failed to improve water infrastructure in Bloemhof. More than 300 people have been treated for diarrhoea at the local clinic and hospital. The water supply has been contaminated by raw sewage. Several schools have been closed and thousands have taken ill with diarrhoea. EFF leader in the provincial legislature Alfred Motsi says: "Kids have died already. Our intention as EFF is to help these families to sue the government, because they are an uncaring government. They don't care about issues affecting our communities. In the immediate plan the intention is to ask the government to go to the community and make sure that drastic action is taken." ...

love or hate economic freedom fighters. None the less the youth is the future. You better start building the future than killing it. Asijiki
It is just over few months that the Economic Freedom Fighters has been born, but within that short space of time she has successfully pinpointed the basic assumptions in our struggle, namely that: 1. The illiterate and semi-literate masses of the African people are the key, the core and cornerstone of the struggle for democracy in this country. 2. African Nationalism is the only liberatory creed that can weld these masses who are members of heterogeneous tribes into a solid, disciplined 'and united fighting force; provide them with a loyalty higher than that of the tribe, and give formal expression to their desire to be a nation. 3. The struggle in South Africa is part of the greater struggle throughout the Continent for the restoration to the African people of the effective control or their land. The ultimate goal of our struggle therefore, is the formation of a United States of Africa.

S. African lawmaker Malema dodges tax axe - for now A last-minute deal temporarily saved South African political firebrand Julius Malema from losing his parliamentary seat for failing to pay nearly $2 million in taxes, a lawyer said Monday. Malema, who leads the radical Economic Freedom Fighters party, had faced sequestration after a court declared him provisionally insolvent in February. That would have seen him booted out of parliament just days after being sworn in as a lawmaker. "The parties have agreed to an extension," lawyer Nic Maritz for the South African Revenue Service (SARS) told a Pretoria court. He is due back in court on August 25. Malema said the country's revenue authorities accepted his compromise proposal to pay back outstanding tax. "The offer to compromise took into account the existing outstanding tax of 18 million rand ($1.7 million, 1.3 million euro at current rates)," Malema, 33, said in a statement. The bellicose politician presents himself as a champion of the poor and is known ...

Malema has until 10am on Monday to give the high court in Pretoria reasons why his provisional sequestration should not be made final. In April, a trust was launched to collect funds to settle his R16-million South African Revenue Service (Sars) bill, but it is not clear if the trust has secured enough funds to help the firebrand Economic Freedom Fighters leader. Trust chairperson Mandisa Mashego said a statement with an update would be issued soon.

Every Generation has its own mission to accomplish..the generation of OR Tambo, Robert Sobukwe, Steve Biko, Nelson Mandela and many more of our political struggle veterans had their own mission and they did their best to achieve that mission they were indebted to make it to come and pass in their lifetime time. It is our time now to materialize the mission of our generation. Economic Freedom in our lifetime is inevitable whether the agents of white capitalists( the likes of Cyril Ramaphosa and Patrice Motsepe) likes it or not.

EFF’s Election Performance: All Hype and No Substance Posted by: Opinion Piece Tags: Congress of the People, Economic Freedom Fighters, elections 2014, Steven Friedman Posted date: May 13, 2014 | Comment -Steven Friedman If the social justice agenda here depends on inflating the popular support and the commitment to equality of a loud group of racial nationalists, it is in more trouble than we thought. The nationalists are the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF), whose 6, 35% of the vote has been hailed by the media, commentators and voices on the left. If we look at the numbers, it is hard to see why the EFF should deserve this hero-worship. If we look beyond them, we will find the reaction to Julius Malema’s party more interesting than the EFF itself. The EFF received 14% less votes than the Congress of the People’s 7, 42% in 2009. It won almost 150 000 votes less than COPE did then even though more people voted this time. Then the mainstream debate, which repeatedly hypes up ANC breakaways, found ...
Jacob Zuma Begins Second Term As S’African President South Africa’s President Jacob Zuma has been sworn into office for a second term, following his party’s victory at the polls. The African National Congress won a commanding victory in the general election on May 7. More than 4,000 guests and several heads of state are at the ceremony in Pretoria. Neither the US or UK are sending a representative but officials from Russia, China and India are attending. President Zuma was officially elected for a second five-year term on Wednesday by the ANC-dominated parliament. The expected formality of the re-election was disturbed only by MPs from the Economic Freedom Fighters, who turned up at parliament in red overalls and hardhats. The EFF, led by former ANC member Julius Malema, said they dressed as maids and miners to show they intend to represent the interest of workers. South African media say Saturday’s inauguration ceremony is as much about celebrating Nelson Mandela, who died last year, and 20 years ...

A RECAP OF YESTERDAYS PROCEEDINGS IN THE NA The National Assembly on Wednesday elected African National Congress national chairperson Baleka Mbete Speaker after 400 new MPs took their seats – ranging from the red-clad initiates of the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) to veterans of the post-apartheid Parliament. Mbete easily defeated the Democratic Alliance's (DA's) nominee for the post, former ANC Eastern Cape premier Nosimo Balindlela who first defected to the Congress of the People and then to the official opposition in 2012. Mbete won 260 votes compared to Balindlela's 88. There were 366 ballots cast of which 18 were invalid. Mbete previously held the post from 2004 to 2008 and replaced the widely respected Max Sisulu, who was sworn in as an ordinary ANC MP on Wednesday. Outgoing co-operative governance and traditional affairs minister Lechesa Tsenoli was elected deputy speaker unopposed. Earlier Chief Justice Mogoeng Mogoeng called MPs to take the oath or solemn affirmation in groups of 10, with t . ...

In May 2011 the president of the ANC Youth League, Julius Malema, arrived at the e.tv studios at the Independent Electoral Commission's results centre in Pretoria. Lindiwe Mazibuko, at the time the DA's spokesman, had been waiting an hour for a televised debate with Malema. Malema refused to take part, saying he had not been asked to debate with her. "She's a nobody, she's a tea girl of the madam [DA leader Helen Zille]. I'm not debating with the service of the madam," he said. The wheel has turned since then. Malema is now headed for parliament to represent his new party, the Economic Freedom Fighters. Mazibuko is headed for an Ivy League university and is at the centre of one of the biggest firestorms to engulf the DA, with racial overtones that might shatter the party as it stands on the brink of significant power in Gauteng and urban centres elsewhere. And Helen Zille? Well, she is in trouble. She is in big, big trouble. Yesterday the Sunday Times reported that, at a DA federal executive meeting, Zill ...

It is an exciting time for the newcomers, especially the youngsters in Julius Malema's Economic Freedom Fighters who've been counting the sleeps and polishing their berets for the occasion.
In the 2009 national election, the ANC secured nearly three-quarters of the vote in the Rustenburg municipality. This year the ruling party managed only 57%. The major beneficiary of ANC decline was the new kid on the block – the Economic Freedom Fighters – which achieved 20% of the vote despite being less than a year old. A key moment in this political shift was the 2012 strike at Lonmin platinum mine in Marikana, during which 34 mine workers were gunned down by police. The Marikana massacre brought to the fore the close relationship between the government, the mining companies, and trade unions – most notably the National Union of Mineworkers (NUM) and its labour federation, the Congress of South African Trade Unions (Cosatu). For many residents of the platinum belt, the ANC is the glue that holds this triangle together. One mineworker put it that “the ANC is Cosatu. Cosatu is NUM. All those people; they have got a hand in the killing of workers who died at the mountain. Because they are the one ...

CHECKING ON THE MORAL SUASION OF WHAT WE DO IN NIGERIA the active and meaningful inclusion of People with disabilities, Women and Youths is a critical inroad into mainstream politics. There is an absence of legal backing for women participation in politics On the issue of People living with disabilities, i believe that electoral laws are not sensitive to the needs of over 12 million people living with disabilities in Nigeria. i wonder when the government say elections are expensive i often ask, to what are the elections expensive compared to? I respectfully disagree. It’s disheartening to admit the fact that political parties in Nigeria are just meant for organizing elections and not the welfare of the nation, they are there to promote personal aggrandizement of the MICROSCOPIC FEW (Patrick Obahiabgon). when i especially here or most often listen to people talk about the YOUTH LEADER in any political party as a youth i ask, to whom are the youth leaders answerable to?

EFF SENDS ITS REVOLUTIONARY CONDOLENCES TO FAMILIES AND FRIENDS OF THE TURKISH MINERS WHO DIED IN THE COAL MINE EXPLOSION 15 May 2014 Economic Freedom Fighters sends its revolutionary condolences to the families and friends of mineworkers in Soma, about 75 miles north-east of the Aegean coastal city of Izmir who have died in the coal mine explosion.

How ANC Gauteng lost the plot Lower number of votes was caused by leaders more interested in creating mutual assistance fraternities Dominic Tweedie, The New Age, Johannesburg, 14 May 2014 The results of last week’s national election in South Africa present a simple picture - The African National Congress (ANC) has achieved a decisive win. The ANC won 11 436 921 votes, 62% of the total, in support of its comprehensive manifesto outlining its National Development Plan, and for a radical second phase of the national democratic revolution. The people have spoken. South Africa’s course is set, for now. For four months, from the ANC’s Anniversary Statement in early January, to the Siyanqoba Rally in early May, the ANC’s message has been consistent, and it has been understood. The overall result is a clear and unequivocal majority for the ANC, and for its programme. There is, however, a dark side to this picture. This article examines the election results in more detail, with a view to what may happen i ...

ECONOMIC Freedom Fighters (EFF) member, Pfano Murudi, laid an assault charge against the Musina mayor, Carol Phiri after Murudi was allegedly bitten in a political brawl on Saturday. The scuffle happened when ANC members rode in a motorcade, celebrating their election win, when they met a taxi filled with EFF members. A fight broke out between the members of the two parties. Murudi (28) told CV that a taxi driver, Reuben Rammbwa, who was in EFF colours, gave the signal that he wanted to turn into another street when Phiri blocked the road with her luxury vehicle. She said Phiri alighted from her vehicle and opened the taxi driver's door. Murudi said Phiri claimed that EFF members were provoking ANC members. "She picked up a brick and hit the driver on the forehead. Rammbwa asked Phiri why she hit him. He did not fight back, saying he cannot fight a woman. The mayor took another brick and hit Rammbwa again; this time on the arm. "I got out of the taxi. As I moved closer to see what was going on, the mayor ...

Tough choices stare at ANC By Golden Guvamatanga AS South Africa emerges from last week’s hectic electoral period, there are several considerations that need to be given urgent attention by President Jacob Zuma’s administration especially in the context of the fulfilment of the goals of the liberation struggle. In the first instance, is the numbers garnered by opposition Democratic Alliance (DA). While the ruling African National Congress (ANC) was confirmed as the winner of the plebiscite after garnering 61,15 percent of the total vote cast, it is the strengthening of the opposition DA that is worrisome especially in light of the view that it represents the ugly face of Apartheid, the same way the MDC-T is the face of the Rhodesian lobby in Zimbabwe. Without doubt, the 22,2 percent scored by the DA presents inevitable challenges to the hegemonic interests of the liberation movements across the Southern Africa region. The DA is out to preserve and restore the Apartheid old order. But the ANC’s victo ...
May 12 (GIN) – In a closely watched election, South Africans turned out a decisive “vote for the party,” giving the African National Congress – the party of Mandela - another five years at the nation’s helm.   Despite a recent scandal over costly improvements charged to the taxpayer for the private residence of President Jacob Zuma, the former liberation movement managed to attract 62% of the 18-million votes cast last Wednesday.   Releasing the results, South Africa's electoral commission reported more than half of all votes went to the African National Congress, followed by the Democratic Alliance with 22.2% and the Economic Freedom Fighters, an ANC breakaway, led by Julius Malema with 6.4%.   These numbers give the party of Mandela fewer members of parliament and fewer members at several provincial legislatures.   The ANC must celebrate its victory, cautioned Tinyiko Maluleke, a university-based political analyst, but also “carefully distinguish between the things to celebrate and the t ...

Cape Town - President Jacob Zuma knew about developments at his Nkandla homestead, former ANC MP Ben Turok said on Wednesday. The ruling party's dismissal of the controversy that haunted its election campaign masked a deeper unease, he told the Cape Town Press Club. "Nkandla is of course a big issue for the ANC," Turok said "There is a great deal of uneasiness... It was a shambles." He said Zuma was patently aware of the details of the R246m project because he complained about slow progress and suggested changes. "The president knew about it because he was there and he complained. He said 'please don't put windows there and put them there and there'." Turok said the loss of more than 3% of the ANC's vote share in last week's elections would prompt introspection in the party. The opposition, however, failed to understand that "African" voters felt a deep loyalty to the party that outweighed disapproval on any one particular issue. "The ANC is your family, it is neighbour, your mother, your father. Zuma can ...

A woman EFF activist from Marikana in the North West is heading to Parliament. “Yes, we have her because of her leadership qualities. She was nominated to go,” Economic Freedom Fighters spokesman Mbuyiseni Ndlozi said on Tuesday. “She was active in Marikana, she mobilised women in Marikana.” He could not comment further on Primrose Sonti and referred enquiries to her. Sonti told Sapa her son Meshack Mzilikazi was one of a large group of Lonmin mineworkers initially arrested for murder and attempted murder relating to the deaths of miners in August 2012 during a strike and a clash with police. The charges against them were later withdrawn and the Farlam Commission of Inquiry was set up to investigate the deaths of 44 people at Marikana, near Rustenburg, during the strike-related unrest in August 2012. On August 16, police shot dead 34 people, mostly protesting miners, and at least 78 miners were wounded when police fired on a group gathered at a hill near the mine while trying to disarm and dispers ...
A former African National Congress Youth League (ANCYL) leader in Limpopo has launched a scathing attack against the league's national task team. Boy Mamabolo accuses the task team collective of failing to galvanise the youth vote for the ANC during the elections. He says this subsequently benefited Julius Malema's Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF). The league was disbanded after Malema was expelled and a task team appointed to rebuild the structures. The ANC won the general elections on May 7 with a reduced majority while the EFF won 6%. Mamabolo who also plans to contest the league's secretary-general position says an elective conference should be held soon to choose what he calls competent leadership. He says the people who supported the ANC were the elderly, the disabled and people who are receiving social grants. “Young people did not vote for the ANC, some of us are still on the ground and we heard that the ANCYL is not visible. Everybody is complaining. We are saying the ANCYL is dying and we need ...

AFRICAN YOUTHS HAVE A LOT TO LEARN FROM COMRADE Julius Malema. The mere fact that the Economic Freedom Fighters party, a party that formed barely 7 months ago came third, winning 24 seats in the National Assembly and garning over one milion votes in the just ended South Africa's elections is proof that Julius Malema, 33 is an effective and smart politician and leader. Yes, you might dismiss him as an uncouth farscist demagogue whose populist rhetoric has potential to spark racial conflict and cause economic mayhem to South Africa but u cannot deny the fact that Julius Malema is a charismatic fireband whose courage and commitment to the cause of South African youths is unrivalled. Youths have to stand up and be counted as firsts and not lasts. Youths cannot continue to be mere voters and slogan chanters for the old guards. Youths should contest elections enmass

The first results of the 2014 elections put the ANC firmly in the lead with 148 votes, with the opposition parties trailing in single figures. Independent Electoral Commission chairperson Pansy Tlakula announced the first results, from Umzimvubu in Mount Ayliff in the Eastern Cape, one hour 45 minutes after the 9pm close of polling stations today. Results are announced with a “ding-dong” before they appear on the large screens in the national results centre in Pretoria. Traditionally the results from Robben Island, which has 70 registered voters, are the first to come in. In the national votes cast at the Umzimvubu polling station, the Economic Freedom Fighters is in an early second place, with a mere five votes, the DA third with three votes, the UDM fourth with two votes, and the PAC and APC in joint last place with one vote each.

Commissar Thokozani H. Dladla genuine response to Gayton McKenzie's “Open Letter to Julius Malema”. "Julius Malema has been in the political arena for years and founded a political party 9 months back, it beats me what triggered your anxiety into thinking that now is the appropriate time for you to launch your political party’s manifesto with 14 days to the elections at the expense of Julius Malema and Economic Freedom Fighters." "A revolutionary is a person who participates in, or advocates revolution, that’s what Julius Malema is and that’s what Patrice Lumumba and Thomas Sankara were, unlike the conservative person that you are. The term revolutionary refers to something that has a major, sudden impact on society or on some aspect of human endeavor and that’s what EFF has done and still doing, which is why the upcoming elections are predicted to be the highly contested in the history of the young SA democracy. revolution is about an ideology not fashion statements. If you feel your mum and ...

No DA, EFF coalition The DA and the EFF on Wednesday denied reports of a possible coalition between them after the May 7 elections. Democratic Alliance leader Helen Zille said a coalition with the Economic Freedom Fighters would be unworkable because of ideological differences. “I have always made it quite clear that we will only form coalitions where it is possible to form a coherent government and implement our policy commitments to the public,” she said in a statement.

Can the Democratic Alliance and Economic Freedom Fighters improve the quality of life for everyone? DA speaks: “Dynamic economy, where thriving businesses creates jobs, wealth and opportunity for whites. EFF individuals. A strong society, where our families, our communities and our nation create secure foundations on which white people can build their lives. Sustainable environment, where we enhance the beauty of our surroundings, and protect the future of the planet even if, blacks have no houses and land to build on”. DA values: “The more we trust white people, the stronger they and white society become. We're all in this together – government if we win, business, the black voluntary sector, our families and individuals rented to campaign for us. We have a shared responsibility for our future".
The Democratic Alliance and Economic Freedom Fighters say a coalition between them MAY be on the cards in Gauteng.
TO ALL THOSE WHO DONT KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT EFF. Why should you vote EFF? While representing all sections of society, the Economic Freedom Fighters is a the most suitable political formation in South Africa to speak to what are the true interests and aspirations of the youth. The central theme of EFF's Manifesto is about creating an economically developed South Africa, which will present equal opportunities to all people of South Africa. Our vision is to build a developed nation, which guarantees access to quality education and all basic social services for all, while presenting a platform for cutting edge technological innovations. The EFF's vision is to build SA to be counted amongst the most developed nations in the 21st century, with an economy which can provide jobs for all, feed the needy, clothe the poor, and celebrate excellence and educational progress. For this to happen, the economic foundation of South Africa should be fundamentally overhauled. Currently and for the forseeable future, the bigges ...

From One Criminal to yet another~! President Jacob Zuma must be arrested for stealing public money, Economic Freedom Fighters leader Julius Malema has said. “Zuma must rot in jail,” he told EFF supporters at the party’s North West manifesto launch in Mahikeng. “Zuma does not belong to us. He is going to be arrested soon.” Malema told the crowd Zuma had used R1 million to build a chicken run and over two million to construct a swimming pool. “When our people are swimming in poverty, Zuma and his family are swimming in luxury … I do not know whether they can swim.” He said he did not think Public Protector Thuli Madonsela’s recommendation that Zuma repay the money spent on non-security upgrades to his private home in Nkandla, KwaZulu-Natal were right. “It is not correct, Zuma must go to jail. He stole from the poor.” Malema denied that he himself was corrupt. “I was arrested for stealing state money. How can I steal money because I was never employed by government. “I was arrested ...
02 Johannesburg - The ANC of Nelson Mandela died with him, EFF leader Julius Malema said on Sunday. "Nelson Mandela's ANC, the real one, was buried with him. Now it's just Zuma's African National Criminals," Malema told a crowd gathered in Kliptown, Soweto. Malema was introducing advocate Dali Mpofu to the party as its Gauteng premier candidate. "Mandela is sleeping with the real ANC. May his soul rest in peace." Malema said the Economic Freedom Fighters chose Kliptown as its venue because it is where the fight for freedom took place. "Let the fight for economic freedom also start here." He said the party's tent which was erected in Thokoza, south of Johannesburg, had been burned down by the African National Congress. "...but don't fear, they are only burning the tent because they are scared. If we were nobodies they would not have burnt our tent." He urged EFF supporters not to retaliate but to rather pray for the ruling party. "These people are sick, they need prayer." The stage and marquee set up for a ...
