EFF introduces candidates

2014-03-31 14:54
Johannesburg - The Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) introduced their list of candidates for the national election to the media at the Orion Hotel in Braamfontein, Johannesburg, on Monday.

The EFF candidates in attendance included 200 hoping to go to Parliament if the party garnered enough votes in the 7 May election.

The nine premier candidates were also in attendance, including Floyd Shivambu, Hlengiwe Hlophe, and Dali Mpofu.

The candidates were dressed in the party's usual red T-shirts and berets. One T-shirt bore the words "Economic Freedom in our lifetime", while another read "radical change".

Members sang struggle songs, which include the lyrics "Malema why are they shooting us?", and "Zuma the heat is coming".

The crowd cheered as Shivambu introduced EFF leader Julius Malema, who joined them in singing the national anthem.

The rest of the proceedings were closed to the media.

Malema once presided over the ANC Youth League (ANCYL) but was expelled by the ANC and Shivambu was the league's spokesperson but he was later expelled by the ANCYL.
