Senior research associate at the Auwal Socio-Economic Research Institute and research fellow at the University of KwaZulu Natal’s social sciences department, Imraan Buccus, has written a scathing opinion piece in The Sunday Times, saying the EFF manifesto is the work of “crude opportunists”.

According to the academic, the manifesto “veers incoherently from far-right neo-liberal economics, like export processing zones, to classic far-left policies, like radical land reform”. Buccus says the manifesto makes “wildly outlandish promises” which would “bankrupt SA in a month”, which in turn would lead to the printing of more money, which would result in “an economic and social catastrophe of Zimbabwean and Venezuelan proportions”.

This, Buccus concludes, would lead to riots in the streets.
