In 2014, Limpopo was unmistakably black, green and gold because it was there that the ANC recorded its most decisive victory of the eight provinces it won in that year's elections. 6% of the vote and the EFF became the official opposition in the province after 10.
74% of ballots cast went to the red berets. But driving through small towns in the northern most province, one could be fooled into thinking that the EFF has the biggest drawcard, judging by the red wave of posters and billboards that line the streets.
As News24 entered Seshego, there was a massive red billboard which read: "Son of the soil", accompanied by a smiling Julius Malema.
