Komatipoort - More people will be killed by the police under the ANC-led government, Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) leader Julius Malema said on Tuesday.

"They started with Andries Tatane and said there's no evidence and the police walked free," he told a meeting in KaHhoyi village near Komatipoort in Mpumalanga.

"They came to Marikana and in two years we still don't know what happened. Now the people of Brits want water but they are met with death from the police."

A Sapa correspondent reported that Malema called on people not to vote for a government that was "killing" them.

"I'm telling you, you see it on TV and think it will never happen to you, it's coming here."

He sought to dissuade people from voting for President Jacob Zuma.

"When you get to the ballot paper, you will see Zuma's face. Before you vote for your party, start by addressing him.

"Say: 'Zuma, before I vote for my party, let me address you. You must tell your cows for which you built a R1m kraal to vote for you'," Malema said to laughter.

He said two houses in KaHhoyi village would cost less than the R500 000 spaza shop built for Zuma's wife.

"They said in 2014 we will not have shacks, but look at how the shacks have doubled in 20 years of democracy. Rapists are terrorising people.

"If you want more spaza shops for [Zuma's] many wives vote for him, if you want more kraals and swimming pools vote for him, because that is where your money goes," he said.

Malema also criticised the ANC-led government for failing to provide decent jobs to the unemployed.

"They came to Mbombela and promised people six million jobs in five years, while they failed to produce jobs in 20 years. In that period we didn’t create jobs, but lost 1.4 million jobs. How can they say they are going to create jobs in five years?" he asked.
