Malema: EFF will change North West

2014-03-29 15:54

Mahikeng - The Economic Freedom Fighters are ready to change the North West, its leader Julius Malema said on Saturday.

"North West is the home of the EFF. You are the second best rally after Tembisa... this is the sign that we are ready to take North West," he told supporters at the launch of the provincial election manifesto at the Montshioa Stadium near Mahikeng.

Malema said the African National Congress failed people in Mahikeng to an extent that the people longed for the Bophuthatswana government.

Bophuthatswana, which was led by Lucas Mangope, was one of ten homelands during apartheid.

"People said they did not like Mangope for suppressing politics but at least Mangope was able to provide services," Malema said.

He said the EFF would bury corruption.

"Today is the funeral of corruption, maladministration and jobs for sex," he said to loud applause from the crowd.

Malema said RDP houses built by the ANC were worse than the match box houses built by the apartheid government.

"The ANC house collapses soon after the handing over ceremony. It literally follows them."

He said there was no good story to tell but a "suffering story" to tell.

Malema said his party would partner with mineworkers to ensure that they get paid R12 500.

"We want security guards to be paid R7 000. They protect us, they work hard."

He said the EFF wanted all to be equal.

Malema said black economic empowerment was only benefiting a few people.

"The wealth of South Africa circulates between the family of Cyril Ramaphosa and Patrice Motsepe."
