Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) Leader, Julius Malema has encouraged residents in Mooidraai in the Free State to continue occupying the land in the area.
Malema says the area belongs to the residents. Last year, the party encouraged residents in the area to occupy a municipal farm saying the EFF would provide services to them should it be elected in the 2021 local government elections.
On the video below, EFF continues its campaign trail in the Free State:
The Metsimaholo Local Municipality’s court bid to evict the families failed. Malema has promised decent housing and services to the those who are without ablution facilities.
“We will never let go of this place. It belongs to us. Our children’s homes are here. Every house must have a flushing toilet. If it doesn’t have a flushing toilet, it’s not a proper house.
They said we are equal after 1994. They are turning us no into animals. We are no different from animals. We must be different from animals because we are human beings. We must be treated with respect and respect means a flushing toilet.”
The party was on its campaign trail in the Free State.
