Zuma must rot in jail – Julius Malema

2014-03-29 17:20

President Jacob Zuma must be arrested for stealing public money, Economic Freedom Fighters leader Julius Malema has said.

“Zuma must rot in jail,” he told EFF supporters at the party’s North West manifesto launch in Mahikeng.

“Zuma does not belong to us. He is going to be arrested soon.”

Malema told the crowd Zuma had used R1 million to build a chicken run and over two million to construct a swimming pool.

“When our people are swimming in poverty, Zuma and his family are swimming in luxury ... I do not know whether they can swim.”

He said he did not think Public Protector Thuli Madonsela’s recommendation that Zuma repay the money spent on non-security upgrades to his private home in Nkandla, KwaZulu-Natal were right.

“It is not correct, Zuma must go to jail. He stole from the poor.”

Malema denied that he himself was corrupt.

“I was arrested for stealing state money. How can I steal money because I was never employed by government.

“I was arrested for speaking the truth.”

Malema told his supporters he had opened a criminal case against Zuma in Pretoria.

“I am meeting the police on Monday. I am going to give them evidence that Zuma stole state money.”

Malema called on his followers to take education seriously.

“You must compete with education. Not the phone you have or the clothes you wear ...”

He said EFF would provide free quality education from early childhood and encouraged students to have at least a first degree.
