The EFF has something in the 2016 local government elections that its two main opponents, the ANC and Democratic Alliance, do not have: a blank slate. With the EFF never having contested municipal elections before, all eyes were on their manifesto to see what would be on their target list. True to form, the EFF is setting out to do things differently and is exploiting what the ANC tried and failed to do – introducing a New Age revolutionary fighter, and perhaps some radical social engineering, coming soon to a local council near you.
