- EFF CIC Julius Malema recently spoke to party members during a rally in Chebeng village in Limpopo
- Also known as 'Juju', Malema said the land belongs to black South Africans and that the EFF will ensure it is returned
- Malema also said the EFF would give pensioners a decent amount of money when it comes to social grants
Economic Freedom Fighters leader Julius Malema says they are fighting for a better life for the ordinary black child. Malema says every person in South Africa should have electricity and that having power should not be seen as a luxury.
Speaking at a rally in Ward 9 in Chebeng village, in Limpopo, the outspoken leader said the EFF also want to give the elderly more money when it comes to pension grants.
“Every person here must have electricity. Not the electricity which fails us when we need it the most. We want electricity because electricity is not a luxury but a necessity.
“We want to give the elderly more money because they are the breadwinners. We must share the wealth of the country, and the only way to do it is to give it to the poor.”
The EFF member of Parliament also said it’s important to have a decent social status and that the land belongs to the black people. He added:
“It is the time for black people to eat. Our elders worked in the kitchens without being paid anything. Now is the turn of a black child.
"You must enjoy the benefits of your own land. This land belongs to our forefathers. We want you to eat, we want to give you the land and we want you to teach your children to work for the land."
The experienced leader also took a dig at those who say he is disrespectful in his approach on matters, saying they are scared of the fact that he wants “all of us to eat”.
“Our people don’t want luxury. They want basic things and they want to be educated. The problem is that we are led by fools who are lazy to think.”
Briefly News reported that Malema recently hinted - or, well, admitted rather - that he does not mind if the EFF - and, subsequently, himself - never rules over South Africa.
It all started when a brave South African man tweeted:
"Oksalayo you will never rule the country."
This came as a big surprise to many South African Twitter users who wondered out loud what the Chief of the Economic Freedom Fighters meant by the tweet.
