Johannesburg – EFF leader Julius Malema called on blacks to procreate.

Addressing the community of Meadowlands ahead of the EFF manifesto launch, Malema said blacks should ignore the excuse made by whites and government that black people abused the government's social grant system.

Blacks should instead go on to have many children, said Malema.

He said they should also stop using poverty as an excuse to do the wrong thing.

He told mothers and grandmothers to look after their children to secure their own futures. "Look after your children. They will take care of you. Stop using alcohol and drugs," he said.

Malema told attendees that he, just like them, once lived a life of poverty.

"We were like you with no food ‎to eat but we never turned to drugs," he said.
