Johannesburg - The Economic Freedom Fighters government will provide free quality education, Julius Malema said on Saturday.
"It [government] will put in place mechanisms to encourage students to attain post-graduate degrees and qualifications," he said.
"The EFF government will impose an education tax on all corporations which will be the source of funding for the education and training of all South Africans."
Malema was addressing thousands of supporters at the Mehlareng stadium in Tembisa, east of Johannesburg, during the launch of the EFF's election manifesto.
He said 15 000 pupils would get scholarships to study abroad.
"Five thousand will be medical practitioners [sent] to the best universities across the world to attain skills," he said.
