Almost everywhere ANC leadership goes, they are being met with resentment and resistance from disgruntled members and nonpolitical entities of the community. At the heart of these outbursts is 27 consecutive years of failure to rejuvenate the inner cities and rural areas to provide better opportunities.
The empty promises after empty promises are no longer helping as both supporters and critics are demanding ANC show what it has done for the last 27 years in power.
While factionalism and disgruntlement have turned off ANC supporters, EFF is looking rejuvenated and laser-focused now more than ever. The fighters are they are called by Juju look more organized and more importantly much more happy and positive than any other political party.
Malema who used to traffic in hate and insults has completely revamped his image by focusing on issues rather than people. He also has learned to read the room, Mzansi is a happy place and there is no need for hate-filled rhetoric. Now those insults are being replaced by jokes and music and attracting large and large crowds in the process.
Rally after Rally, the EFF is now attracting more people to its meeting as compared to ANC which is focused on the door-to-door campaign.
The only concern is whether Malema can convert these numbers into votes, only November first will tell.
