Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) leader Julius Malema,  together with some of the party’s local, provincial and national leadership, have embarked on a tour of Soshanguve and Hammanskraal north of Pretoria.

They are listening to residents’ complaints ahead of the launch of the party’s election manifesto at the Giant stadium in Soshanguve this Saturday.

Residents of the townships complained to Malema about poor service delivery, low social grants for pensioners, youth delinquency and drug abuse as well as general crime.

In response, the highly-charged Malema told residents and EFF members that it was time to vote out corrupt leaders.
