Don't get ahead of yourself. The Economic Freedom Fighters are indeed quite terrible. But there is a reason for their existence in the first place. South Africa's largest political parties are either woefully corrupt (the African National Congress) or they consist of a weak, ineffective, and frankly pathetic opposition (the Democratic Alliance). Like UKIP in Britain, EFF's support is inflated because they are an 'anti-system' party. A lot of their voters are simply protest voters who are unsatisfied with the current powers-that-be, and don't actually buy into the party's rhetoric on race. Not to mention that EFF only got 6% of the vote in last year's general election.
