About the structure

Economic Freedom Fighter is the new structure which was formed last year , July 2013. It was started by expelled former ANCYL president Julius Malema. Since it has started the structure has gained enormous number of supporters and it continues to do so by day. Very recently, the Tshwane University of Technology started the organization within their campuses. The purpose of their structure is so they could also campaign and have supporters within the university just like other structures .e.g. ANC vs SASCO, PAC vs PASMA, DA vs DASO etc.
“According to a November 2013 Ipsos survey, the party’s supporters are younger than average, with 49% being younger than 24, overwhelmingly black (99%) and mostly male, with women representing only 33% of the support base.” It is usually through the young leaders that the party recruit more members. With the EFF organization evident in the Tshwane university, the structure is bound to get even more members.
