In a statement on Saturday, a public holiday marking 25 years since South Africa went to the polls in the first democratic elections, the EFF reiterated long-held views that the country remains unfree.

The party’s spokesperson, Mbuyiseni Ndlozi, said they recognised the important milestone of 1994 and the granting of the vote to all adult citizens, but bemoaned the ongoing status quo that has seen 72% of privately owned land still in the hands of white people, according to the EFF. The party also criticised the slow pace of land reform under the ANC government, leaving black Africans as “landless visitors in the country of their birth”.

The EFF would therefore not be celebrating freedom, as doing so would be disingenuous.
