EFF’s Floyd Shivambu comes into terms with MK Party defeat

Although the vote count has not yet been completed, Floyd Shivambu of the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) has come into terms with the defeat to the uMkhonto weSizwe (MK) party.

He remarked that the African National Congress (ANC), which governs KwaZulu-Natal, has suffered the greatest loss. The Inkatha Freedom Party (IFP) and the Democratic Alliance (DA) were also affected, as the MK Party secured over 1.3 million votes nationally.

“The ANC has suffered the biggest loss in KwaZulu-Natal and possibly more than 40% of the vote that they had in 2019. The IFP is suffering the same fate as well. There was no way that when there are tectonic shifts politically in KZN that the ANC was going to be spared but what is inspiring is that despite a huge contribution from KwaZulu-Natal which was our second biggest contributor of 2019, the EFF is still comfortably a million votes, which demonstrates that we are not a regional party that even if there are shifts in one corner we still remain solid as an organisation that is commendable.”
