The EFF will on Saturday celebrate its sixth birthday, and South Africans have taken to Twitter to wish the party well ahead of the festivities.
The hashtag #EFFturns6 has topped the trends list on Twitter as politicians, party members and South Africans acknowledge the impact the EFF has had on the political landscape.
The EFF is holding a celebratory bash in Kanyamazane, Mpumalanga, on Saturday.
It said it would continue to "change the lives of people for the better".
They said we'd never make a difference. Prophets of doom said we would not last past two years of existence but our work and achievements speak for themselves.— Economic Freedom Fighters (@EFFSouthAfrica) July 26, 2019
We will do more. We will change the lives of our people for the better.
