DURBAN - EFF CIC Julius Malema believes that former president Jacob Zuma needs to make a decision about his political career. Malema recently stated that Zuma should either remain a politician or go on retirement.
The news follows Msholozi's ANC campaigning in which he encouraged South Africans to tick the box next to the ANC logo at the upcoming local government elections. Malema stated that Zuma has no idea when to halt his activities and added that the former president needs to accept his age.
Malema further brought Zuma's parole into the matter saying that people have not shared their comments about it.
According to TimesLIVE, Malema said that if Zuma decides on returning to politics, they would be ready for him. The leader of the 'Red Berets' explained that his party's campaigning in KZN had no bearing on the ANC's inner battles nor does it have anything to do with the civil unrest in July.

The report continued by explaining that Malema stated Zuma was not an 'issue' in the political atmosphere due to the fact that he was retired. He added that community members in KZN had been calling for the party to campaign within the province for a while.
During the SABC News interview, Malema revealed that he would retire at the age of 55. Whether he serves three or four terms as EFF CIC or becomes the president of South Africa, Malema stands by his decision.

"Zuma promised to run one 5yr term only but he's still there and so far it's President Mandela who kept his revolution promises and Malema will follow in Zuma's leadership styles..."
"Malema just said that Zuma is nothing in SA politics. The same person he hired a chartered plane to have a Joko tea party with not so long ago. With Malema, anything goes."
"EFF and Zuma are oil and water, they are enemies."
