Afrikaners want economic freedom - EFF

Johannesburg - Afrikaners, including some farmers, also believe in economic freedom, according to a white Economic Freedom Fighters communications and media strategist, Beeld reported on Wednesday.

"Some of them also believe in economic freedom," Kim Heller was quoted as saying.

"I believe any South African who has an interest in democracy will be interested in the economic freedom that the EFF seeks."

According to the report, Heller had been voting for the African National Congress since 1994 but had now joined the EFF.

"I thought the EFF offers a real alternative. I support the party fully."

Support for the EFF was growing among white people, she said.

Heller is on the EFF's national and Gauteng lists.

In February, EFF leader Julius Malema called on white people to join the party to get their hands on land.

"White people must join the struggle for land. Only two percent of whites own land. If they want land, they must join EFF," he said at the time.

He said the EFF was not an anti-white party but a vanguard for the working class.

"That includes the white workers," he said.

However, in October Malema said the land belonged to the landless and white South Africans were still refusing to hand over the land they inherited "through theft".

"Till today they [whites] are not ashamed of killing our people. They want us to kneel before them," he said at the time.

"We are not going to do that. We are not going to beg for the land. Bring back the land."
