Unconfirmed reports from sources who wished to remain anonymous have indicated that the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) and Black First Land First (BLF) will be merging to form a new party, called BFF.

The merger has been agreed upon following protracted negotiations that saw the EFF committing to stop calling BLF members “nyaope boys”, and the BLF in turn promising to stop claiming the EFF are agents of MI6 with the secret mandate of protecting white monopoly capital (WMC) against those fighting for radical economic transformation (RET). This is just one of a series of mergers that will take place following requests from the IEC that parties club together to help them save on ballot-printing costs, following the addition of new parties such as Mzwanele Manyi’s ATM, Hlaudi Motsoeneng’s ACM and Patricia De Lille’s Good.

“We are hoping that such a series of mergers will allow all the political parties participating in this year’s election to fit on the ballot, which we’d very much like to be kept to less than the length of a standard toilet roll,” said an IEC official, who also asked to remain anonymous.
