Give us five years: Malema

2014-05-04 19:20

Pretoria - EFF leader Julius Malema on Sunday appealed to South Africans to give his party five years in government.

"We don't want 20 years in government, we are only asking for five years," he told supporters at Lucas "Masterpieces" Moripe Stadium in Atteridgeville, Pretoria.

"If we don't deliver, fire us. Show us the door and say we want hard workers."

He said leaders in his party would never steal from government coffers but would instead push for the upliftment of the poor.

"We will never take your hungry children's money. When you take public funds, your taking money that is meant for ARVs for the sick."

Malema said there was too much money in the country but those in power did not know what to do with it.

He spoke of mechanisms that would be implemented to curb wasteful expenditure and contribute to the increment of grants in the party's manifesto.

He said ministers and the president would have to buy their own cars and houses as they earned salaries.

"Like all civil servants, buy your own car, houses. Why should we buy politicians cars and houses while they work? The time of politicians being treated like royalty is over," he said.

The elections take place on 7 May.
