Registration for the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) second elective conference is currently under way at the University of Johannesburg (UJ).

A total of 3,800 delegates are expected, a total of 2,100 guests have already registered, and 61 of 76 expected buses have already arrived at UJ. Clearing the allegations and questions on whether the conference was funded with VBS bank money, the EFF treasurer-general Leigh Mathys said the EFF conference was self-funded, adding that the party’s income stream had doubled, in accordance with the doubling of provincial legislatures and parliamentary seats when compared with the previous election victory.

“The EFF conference is self-funded, there is no VBS money or any other private funders involved,” Mathys said.
