Bloemfontein - The EFF has seen the future, it is bright, and the party can take South Africa there, its leader Julius Malema said on Sunday.

"We have been to the mountain top and have seen the future. The future looks very bright," he told delegates at the party's elective conference at the University of the Free State in Bloemfontein.

"South Africa will get to economic emancipation and at the forefront will be EFF because we will not tire."

Malema said the Economic Freedom Fighters was the only organisation that would liberate the country.

"There is no other vehicle that has the energy and will to liberate South Africa," he said.

Earlier, Malema said South Africa is in crisis.

"It is experiencing a leadership crisis," he told delegates.

He referred to unemployment, service delivery, and education.

"We are in a crisis because the eight million people need jobs and cannot find them... We are in a crisis because we have a local government that cannot deliver basic services. We have an education crisis... those in government do not know where matriculants will go next year.

"We are in crisis because Parliament is run in a partisan fashion. Judges are also co-opted into a corrupt system to protect corrupt politicians."

The Economic Freedom Fighters should fight with determination to defeat the ruling African National Congress, which he said was weak.

"We are the worthy successors from the ruling party," the former ANC Youth League leader said.

"The rightwing party such as the DA has reached the ceiling and will not attract anymore black voters."

He rejected claims that the EFF was collaborating with the Democratic Alliance in Parliament.
