Economic Freedom Front (EFF) leader, Julius Malema, says a free South Africa can only be realised if all people living with disabilities have access to basic services, including descent housing.
He says it’s a shame that 25 years into democracy there is still a substantial number of people with disabilities who live in shacks.
Malema was addressing his party supporters at the EFF Tshela Thupa Rally at Orlando Stadium in Soweto. He says people with disabilities need to receive overwhelming attention from government.
He adds that “Liberation, economic freedom without the emancipation of women is not freedom.”
#EFFTshelaThupaRally Malema: EFF is fighting for equality. We are not fighting against white people, we are fighting against white privilege, we are fighting against white arrogance. We are not fighting for black people to oppress white people, we are fighting for equality.

Earlier, Malema gave a passionate farewell tribute to his late grandmother, Sarah. He says his grandmother was a pillar of strength to the Malema family.
Meanwhile, EFF national chairperson, Advocate Dali Mpofu, said the party was prepared for the elections. He said Malema was coping through the support he had been receiving from fellow South Africans since the passing of his grandmother.
Mpofu says voters must do the right thing and vote for the EFF in honour of the late Koko Sarah Malema.
