Johannesburg - Julius Malema has been crashing with friends and at relatives' homes since his houses and a farm were attached and auctioned earlier this year. 

The leader of the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) told City Press during his party’s launch in Marikana last Saturday that he was living the life of a nomad. 

He books rooms in cheap hotels or sleeps at friends' and comrades' houses when he visits Johannesburg for work. 

"They have taken everything from me, but they can't destroy me,"  he told the paper.

He said life had changed in many ways since he was expelled from the ANC Youth League last April. 

"I have lost many friends, but the positive side of this is that those who I have been blocked away from, now have access to me."

Malema’s incomplete Sandton villa in Johannesburg and his Polokwane house were attached by the SA Revenue Service and were auctioned after he failed to settle a 16.5m tax bill earlier this year. 

He is facing charges of money laundering, fraud and corruption.
