Johannesburg - The National Freedom Party welcomed about 2500 new members in Bizana in the Eastern Cape on Thursday, party leader Zanele kaMagwaza-Msibi said.

"I am happy that our party is growing stronger on a daily basis and this serves as a boost for us as we move closer towards national elections," she said in a statement.

"Contrary to what the prophets of doom said, the NFP grows very fast and we make inroads in all provinces on a daily basis."

kaMagwaza-Msibi said most of the party's newest members were previously with the African National Congress.
