The Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF)’s election campaign has reached the North West Province. The party’s leader Julius Malema has outlined everything his party will do if elected to govern the country.

He told Lethabong residents near Rustenburg that dealing with corruption and those guilty of stealing public funds will be among the first things on the agenda.

Malema managed to deliver his party’s manifesto in two provinces in just one day. From the North West Province, he went to the Free State’s Phuthaditjhaba stadium in Qwaqwa.

He told voters the party will restore people’s dignity that the African National Congress (ANC) failed to do in their 25 years of governance.

“Those who commit corruption you are worse than those who are pick pocketing because they just stealing the money from the purse of an individual you are stealing from our collective purse, you are stealing from thousands of people.”

Malema told supporters his party will protect the public purse from corruption if voted into power.

“When you still from black people you will never have friends in the EFF, you are the enemy that’s why the ANC is an enemy it stole from our people for 25 years.”

The party leader has also reiterated that xenophobia has no place in South African communities.

In the North West Malema outlined everything his party it will do if elected to govern the country.

The EFF is looking to increase its five seats in the provincial legislature.

The Party leader says the EFF is ready to be more than just the main opposition party in the province, but to govern.

“Fighters we must fight corruption in Rustenburg and Mafikeng and everywhere else. Why don’t you have water here? It’s corruption. There is money but it is taken by the likes of Wolmarans and Supra Mahumapelo,” says Malema.

Malema continued his condemnation of xenophobia in communities and called for social cohesion.

“Africa is not a continent. Africa is a country. From Cairo to Cape Town, Madagascar to Morocco we are one thing. There is no way you can say another African is lost in Africa,” adds Malema.

Meanwhile, party loyalists say a vote for the EFF is a vote for change.

“I want the EFF to help me and not side-line me like the ANC,” says a supporter.

“I support the EFF because the EFF itself has changed the people’s lives,” adds another supporter.

“Come the 8th of May changes should be there. we cannot always be under one government that is not caring for poor people,” says another supporter.

The EFF has also vowed to increase the salaries of public servants once in government. He says that will combat corruption. – Additional reporting Sentleeng Lehihi
