Johannesburg - The leadership of the Economic Freedom Fighters were on hand to support their commissar Mbuyiseni Ndlozi when he received his PhD in Political Studies at the University of Witwatersrand on Tuesday.

In August there was a huge outpouring of public support for Ndlozi, who is popularly known as "the people's bae", when he announced that the university has awarded him the qualification.

On Tuesday the EFF tweeted from its official account: "The EFF is fountain of knowledge and education. We salute our National Spokesperson for leading by example."

Julius Malema, the leader of the EFF had a message of his own for Dr Ndlozi. "Red beret followed by red gown is equal to a Dr".
