We will make Gauteng ungovernable - Malema

2014-07-04 08:00

Kicking the EFF out of the Gauteng legislature will result in the party mobilising its supporters and making the province ungovernable, EFF leader Julius Malema has warned. Watch. WATCH

Johannesburg - Kicking the Economic Freedom Fighters out of the Gauteng legislature will result in the province becoming ungovernable, EFF leader Julius Malema said on Thursday.

"Continuation to remove EFF from legislature through unruly methods will lead to instability in this province," Malema told reporters in Johannesburg.

"We will fight. We have the capability to mobilise our people and fight physically."

Malema was responding to the removal of EFF MPLs from the legislature for wearing red overalls bearing slogans.

Police were called in when they refused to heed the speaker's order to leave the Chamber.

Not scared

"We are not scared of anything. We will bring our voters into the city and they will know who we are. They must not push because we have the capacity to fight," Malema said.

The African National Congress should remember it had not won the province during the recent election. He said the results were "corrupt and fraudulent".

"The ANC lost in Gauteng. They [ANC] know what happened in Alexandra. Had we not intervened, this province would be in ashes," said Malema.

Residents of Alexandra went on the rampage when ballot boxes were discovered in the township. Roads were barricaded with burning tyres and people were arrested.
