Johannesburg - The Economic Freedom Fighters is the solution to the problems facing South Africa, party leader Julius Malema said on Saturday.

"South Africa is in trouble and we are the medicine to the crisis our people are facing," he told supporters at Thokoza Park in Soweto.

Malema was addressing supporters at the party's one year anniversary. He said the EFF was shaking the political landscape in the country and making those in power accountable to the people.

He said the party was the only formidable opposition to the ruling party since the dawn of democracy.

"For the first time in South Africa there is an opposition. Some are even losing weight because they have to think before they open their mouth," he said.

Malema said the party was going to change the order of proceedings in Parliament to ensure that things were done differently.

He called on EFF supporters to make sure that people respected the organisation.

He said they did not care what opposition parties in Parliament say about their ways.

"As long as our masses are happy, then we are happy," Malema said.

He lashed out at the SABC for failing to broadcast the rally live. He called on supporters not to pay their TV license and said nothing would be done to them if they absconded from paying.

"They can't even take you the credit bureau," he said.
