Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) leader Julius Malema has warned the party’s student command and youth members not to become involved in violence in the name of votes.

Malema was addressing hundreds of students that Durban University of Technology ahead of the party’s manifesto launch on Saturday in Durban.

He says as the country heads to the general elections, EFF members must not engage in bloodshed because of politics.

“Do not get get involved in violence in the name of votes. We must hate seeing blood of black people, because if we do not want to see our own blood, let’s not see the blood of others. We want peace and we want tolerance and we want successful elections where EFF will emerge victorious here in KwaZulu-Natal as the government of the day. Whatever happens the ANC will not win KwaZulu-Natal.”

Meanwhile, this was the reception at the Durban University of Technology. These students are singing the EFF’s famous uPhephela song.
