Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) leader Julius Malema has credited his party for the current political developments in the country, including the recent removal of former President Jacob Zuma.
Malema says South Africa would not have been where it is today had it not been for the EFF’s role in parliament.
EFF breathed life into the life of South Africa, he says.
He was addressing his supporters at the launch of voter registration campaign in Johannesburg.
Malema also fired a salvo against the Democratic Alliance (DA), for voting against their motion of land expropriation without compensation in Parliament last week.
They are now ready to table a motion to remove the Nelson Mandela Bay Mayor, Athol Trollip, on April 6.
“We don’t care about white feelings. Trollip deserves nothing from us. We don’t hate white people‚ we just love black people. We don’t love the ANC it is corrupt,” says Malema.
He also warned the ANC that should they fail to field a credible candidate, like former Deputy Finance Minister Mcebisi Jonas, they could forget about getting the EFF’s support.
The EFF leader cautioned that they would not be dictated to, by the West, including Britain, the EU and the UN on land expropriation without compensation.
He appealed to the Zulu kingdom to refrain from making war threats against land expropriation.
“The Zulu kingdom must not be used by whites. If the Ngonyama trust is corrupt it must be disbanded. No one should threaten civil war, we are not in democracy,” adds Malema.
Even President Cyril Ramaphosa was not spared.
“If he goes to Marikana and humble himself before the workers of Marikana we are not working with Ramaphosa and if he does not do what is right he will follow Zuma.”
He urged on all South Africans to register next weekend.
The EFF is targeting one million voters in each province, to win the 2019 elections.
