As the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) embark on their 10th anniversary celebrations, they have set their sights on having more members.
Wandile Kasibe, EFF provincial spokesperson, said membership of the EFF was open to all race groups. It already has a few white members who joined the party at university level or elsewhere.
Political analysts have in the past noted that the EFF are one of the fastest growing political parties in the country.
But their members are mostly from townships and they are on a mission to change that narrative.
“It is also worth noting that we do have white people who contact us for assistance and others do join the EFF even though they may not be active, but they do support our cause,” he said.
He noted that the party already has quiet a number of white members but he did not give an estimation of the number.
Dawn Elaine Meyer, 52, a white EFF member in Overberg, said she was attracted to the party becauseit did more than just talk.
She gave her reasons as to why she joined the party and also added that it had nothing to do with race.
“Unlike other parties, the EFF is responsive and it provides solutions,” she said.
