Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) leader Julius Malema is expected to address residents of the Free State as the party celebrates its ninth anniversary.
The party is expected to mark its anniversary at Dr. Celebrate at Molemela Stadium in Mangaung.
The EFF was formed in 2013 after Malema was expelled from the African National Congress (ANC) in 2012. The party has positioned itself as a party that advocates for the rights of the black majority and calls for the expropriation of land without compensation.

EFF celebrates its 9th anniversary in Bloemfontein
Nine years ago, then-expelled ANC Youth League President Julius Malema founded the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF). Malema described the EFF as a protest movement for the black, landless majority.
“We are not materially driven, we are not in a material revolution, you will never take our souls and our souls remain intact, the political will to free our people from economic oppression is our drive, not even prison can Take our political will, we will shout economic freedom from the cells when needed because we are committed to this cause.”
These sentiments cemented the formation of the Red Berets in July 2013. This came after Julius Malema’s Economic Freedom Fighters, Floyd Shivambu, was formed following his expulsion from the ANC in February 2012.
