'This is the start of removing the ANC from power': EFF says no to ALL coalitions


In his famous red-beret, the leader confirmed that his party would not be forming coalitions in contested municipalities, News24 reports.

"EFF is not a home for opportunists," he said by way of explanation. "We are not co-governing. We are voting for the opposition." "In KZN we will vote with the IFP. In Tshwane, PE, Johannesburg, and Ekurhuleni we will vote with the DA." Malema said, adding that the DA were "the better devil".

"This is the start of removing the ANC from power."
