Durban - Members of the Economic Freedom Fighters burst into laughter when a candidate councillor, in an apparent slip of the tongue, shouted, "Viva ANC! Viva!".

The woman was introducing herself to the party's deputy president, Floyd Shivambu, at the Bellhaven Memorial Centre in Durban, where he was meeting branches and councillor candidates in the eThekwini region on Monday. 

The woman was, however, not the only one who suffered confusion. Just before her, another candidate had shouted, "Phezulu ngokhongolose, phezulu." (Up with the ANC!")

Shivambu smiled and gave them hugs, acknowledging that they had mistakes. Some members sitting in the packed hall were visibly irritated by the incidents though.

While members waited for Shivambu, EFF members clapped and sang along to spokesperson Mbuyiseni Ndlozi's now-viral Azania and many other songs, including Kill the boer

About 300 people welcomed Shivambu when he walked in to address the members.
