Land redistribution a priority for Malema

Johannesburg - Land redistribution would be the first order of business for EFF leader Julius Malema if he were to succeed President Jacob Zuma in the upcoming general election.

"The first decision I make as president would be the redistribution of land back to the people," Malema said while visiting the Thusong Youth Centre in Alexandra on Sunday.

"And the land would be to produce food and create jobs."

A voting registration outlet had been set up at the centre.

Wearing a red EFF beret and a white shirt, Malema received a warm welcome in Alexandra as people, particularly children, smiled, clapped and shook his hand.

Malema entered the voting station after 13:00 and greeted IEC officials at the registration office.

He spoke briefly with them before making his way onto 12th Avenue to speak to residents.

Malema said government had failed the people of South Africa.

"It is very clear and evident through the uncontrollable service delivery protests that South Africans are looking for an alternative," he said.

"They have absolutely failed our people in a big way. People were losing interest in politics until the EFF arrived."

Asked whether many South Africans had lost interest in voting, he said:

"No, they will vote."
