JOHANNESBURG - Political analyst, Ralph Mathekga, says the Economic Freedom Fighters should be worried about the political party launched by union, Numsa.

Mathekga said the EFF was tainted by credibility problems such as their response to the VBS allegations.

“The EFF has to make a case they still genuinely interested or they still genuine bearers of the torch when it comes to pursuing left-leaning politics in South Africa.”

He said he believes voters will give Numsa's new political votes in the 2019 general elections.
