‘Maybe when EFF is in power we can convert Nkandla into an educational facility’

Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) leader Julius Malema will not inspect President Jacob Zuma’s controversial private Nkandla homestead in KwaZulu-Natal tomorrow, senior EFF leaders have said.

Malema is due to hand over a house the party built for a woman and her children within 500m of Zuma’s homestead.

EFF central command team member Sipho Mbatha said today: “He is not going to visit the palace. We don’t want things to get too excited.”

EFF KwaZulu-Natal convenor Vusi Khoza also said Malema would not be inspecting Zuma’s residence.

Khoza said EFF workers had been told they could not build the house wearing EFF clothing.

He said the local chief told the EFF their workers could build the house as long as they did not wear party regalia.

“We just respected him, but we are there each and every day. Maybe later when EFF is in power we can convert it [Zuma’s Nkandla home] into an educational facility,” said Khoza.
