Political parties flex their muscles

With just three days to go to the national and provincial elections, political parties made the final strike of their rallies filling stadiums to show strength ahead of the elections; to convey unity and confidence in winning the upcoming elections.

The African National Congress (ANC) yesterday, 25 May 2024, filled the 95 000 capacity FNB stadium in Soweto to its capacity. The masses of ANC supporters showed up in their party regalia to show a united front and strength going into the elections aiming for an outright majority win.

The liberation party has been in power since 1994 and has had uninterrupted six terms by far, the party is seeking for a seventh term and has criss-crossed the country to woo voters to keep them in power.

During his address, the President of the ANC Cyril Ramaphosa said, returning to power, he will grow the economy of South Africa. He reflected on the work already done by the ANC led government, saying a number of black industrialists have been created, as well as many macro-economic opportunities.

He told the masses that the liberation party had made strides in fighting load-shedding and will get rid of it. Ramaphosa touched on the controversial NHI saying it will benefit the nation, especially the underprivileged.

On the other hand, the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) also flexed their muscles by filling the 46 000 capacity Peter Mokaba stadium in the home province of its leader Julius Malema in Limpopo. The stadium was a red sea waiting to open up for the masses to cross over into the promised land. The stadium was buzzing with hope for a better government and a better future for South Africans.

The stadium was also filled to its capacity by, according to Malema only members from the province. They also flexed their muscle showing strength and determination to take over the ruling party. By far, the EFF has been the only party that has been growing each election while the ANC has been declining; this year promises to be no different.

Malema, during his address, committed that when he assumes presidency, he will be loyal to the Constitution of the country and make sure that it does not benefit only those associated to white monopoly capital. He said he is not a sell out and does not have a history of selling out as he has never sold out any of his friends, comrades or any fellow fighter.

Julius Malema has positioned himself as the messiah of South Africa and declared to the masses, the rest of the nation, the African continent and the globe that he will do everything in his power to bring about economic freedom and common prosperity in their lifetime.

Further showing intent to take over government by an outright majority win, Malema introduced the Deputy President of the EFF Floyd Shivambu as the incoming minister of finance who will serve the people with diligence. The Commander in Chief (CIC) urged all members to go vote and remove the ANC from power.
