Economic Freedom Fighter party leader Julius Malema addressed journalists on Thursday at a press conference held near the party's new headquarters in Braamfontein.

Economic Freedom Fighters leader Julius Malema has described President Jacob Zuma’s official residence in Nkandla, Kwa Zulu Natal as “the museum of corruption.”

Speaking to a group of journalist on Thursday in Johannesburg  Malema said they will be building a house for a poor family next to Zuma’s homestead this Saturday.

During the lengthy press briefing Malema answered questions ranging from nationalisation, EFF imitators, and the party's relationship with union Numsa to Nkandla, which he referred to as the "museum of corruption".

Malema said; “We would have left Nkandla having changed the life of an African child...and not singing and dancing," he told reporters.

On the issue of some ANC members seen wearing red berets Malema said the EFF was a “trendsetter” and that there are many things other political parties will be copying from them.

"The red beret remains our symbol, a symbol of commitment to the struggle for economic freedom," he said.

The imitation of EFF election strategies shows that the party is a threat, said new EFF command team member Dali Mpofu.

The EFF is set to launch its election manifesto in Tembisa on February 22.
