Malema: SA in crisis

2014-12-14 13:57

South Africa is in crisis, says EFF leader Julius Malema.

“It is experiencing a leadership crisis,” he told delegates today at the party’s elective conference at the University of the Free State in Bloemfontein.

He referred to unemployment, service delivery, and education.

“We are in a crisis because 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.

“Those who say we are working with the DA have it wrong. We are only collaborating on issues of current affairs,” he said.
