ZIMBABWE Economic Freedom Fighters (ZEFF) leader Innocent Ndibali says his party has embarked on a door-to-door membership recruitment drive in Bulawayo ahead of its official launch in March this year.

ZEFF was once a civic society group under the name Zimbabwe Unemployment People’s Association (Zupa).
It was later renamed Economic Corruption Freedom Fighters (ECFF) before transforming into a political party and adopting the name ZEFF.
Ndibali said the party’s ideology borrowed heavily from South African opposition leader Julius Malema’s Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF).
“The door-to-door campaign is one of the programmes organised by Bulawayo youths. It is only being done in Bulawayo. Other provinces also have their own programmes, which may not be similar,” Ndibali said.
“We are also issuing out pamphlets that speak about who we are and how we want to transform this nation that has been ravaged by decades of mismanagement. In addition, to the recruitment, the youths are also encouraging people to be registered voters.”
Several opposition parties have emerged from the woods amid efforts to coalesce them into a single formidable force to challenge President Robert Mugabe and Zanu PF in the 2018 elections.
