Rustenburg - The ANC is worse than the apartheid government, EFF founder Julius Malema said on Saturday.

"Our people did not die for a house that will not last for three months,'' he said referring to RDP houses.

He was speaking at a rally in Lethabong near Rustenburg, to celebrate his party registration with the IEC.

He said the ANC built small poor quality houses in contrast to what they had been fighting for.

"There is nothing dignified about the houses."

He said supplying water to residents was not complex.

"You just dig a hole and put a pipe to take water to the people -  it is so simple."

He said black people would never own land under the ANC.

"Our struggle is about land. Mandela was arrested for demanding land."

He said people should vote for a party that could deliver.

"Do not vote for people who sing and jive. Vote for principles and policies that deliver.''

Malema was expected to launch his party in Marikana on 13 October.

Malema accused the ANC of killing Marikana mineworkers.

"It is only in SA where 34 people are killed and no one resigns.''

He was referring to 34 mineworkers killed on 16 August 2012 during a strike at the Lonmin mines in Marikana.

"There is a restless spirit at that koppie. We are going to tell the spirit that we are taking the economic freedom forward."

Malema ended his speech by singing the controversial kill the boer song, replacing kill with kiss.
