Blame yourself, Malema tells protesters

2014-02-15 14:52

Pretoria - Economic Freedom Fighters leader Julius Malema on Saturday, told residents of Stofel Park in Mamelodi, east of Pretoria, that they were to blame for the lack of services in the area.

"These roads are like this because you're to blame," he said.

"You have been voting for the same people."

Malema was addressing hundreds of supporters who had gathered for the launch of the party's elections truck.

He told residents that the power was in their hands to bring change and improve their lives.

There was no water, electricity, toilets or decent roads in the area.

Malema said the fact that government had no money should not be used as an excuse to not deliver services.

"Government might not have money but they [can] caterpillar trucks to flatten roads to make them usable."

He urged residents to change their votes and go with a party that would deliver.

"The reason you're here is because you keep on voting for the same people.

"Change is you - change your vote," he said.

Malema addressed residents as part of his election campaign.

The national general elections would be held on 7 May.
