Political analyst, Lesiba Teffo, who was at the EFF’s 2019 Elections manifesto launch in Soshanguve, north of Pretoria, says the party leader engaged with his audience and spoke to issues that affect them on a daily basis.
However, Teffo says not everything published in the manifesto is very practical.
He says Malema went overboard as politicians often do in spaces like that.
He says, “Some of the things are not doable, they are not practical. However, when you want to upstage your opponent you often are generous in order to impress and to attract the audience.”
“There were good things here and there like emphasizing the indigenous knowledge system. Doing away with tenders and at least building state capacity reminded me what happened in yester-years.”
