The Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) will hold a four-day strategy meeting next week and among others, it will discuss forming the party’s youth wing.
Responding to an EFF member who asked the party’s national chairperson, Advocate Dali Mpofu, to form a youth wing of the party, Mpofu said a timeline was likely to be determined at the said meeting.
Mpofu’s comment left some wondering if the party should form a youth league when it was itself “a youth league”.
“I’m rather suggesting that you give political education because we are already a youthful movement,” said one Twitter user.
Those who agreed with the party’s plan advised the national chairperson to rather wait as the party was still new.

Should the party decide to form a women’s league, poet Ntsiki Mazwai has already asked to lead it.
Taking to Twitter recently, Mazwai tweeted EFF CIC Julius Malema and said that if the ANC pushed for Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma, she would like to head up the “EFF Women’s League”. Mazwai, along with other female leaders in the EFF would give the women’s league of “the failed movement a good run”, and ultimately win elections, said one of her followers.
