- The EFF leader said Nkandla should be transformed into a technical and vocational education and training college which would benefit the people of South Africa
Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) leader Julius Malema wants the state to confiscate former president Jacob Zuma’s Nkandla home and transform the property into a technical and vocational education and training (TVET) college.
Malema has launched a multi-pronged attack on Zuma and the Eastern Cape leadership of the African National Congress (ANC).
The EFF leader said his party would embark on a nationwide campaign to have Nkandla taken away from Zuma so it could be used to benefit ordinary South Africans.
Briefly.co.za gathered that Malema said the EFF was nowhere near done with Zuma and wanted the house which was built with the money of South African taxpayers turned into a college to benefit the people of Nkandla and South Africa.
Malema also launched an attack on Zuma about the appointment of a new legal team which according to Malema would cost South Africans R150,000 per day.
He told the crowd the people of South Africa were tired of Zuma and his butternut-shaped head.
SowetanLive.co.za reported that Malema made the comments while addressing an EFF rally in East London. The party has chosen to hold its official fifth-anniversary celebrations in East London.
The Eastern Cape is seen as an ANC stronghold in terms of electoral support and the EFF is not viewed as a major player in the province.
The party has chosen to hold its anniversary celebrations in the province in order to highlight some of the biggest failures of the ANC-led government. Malema said the EFF would take the issues and problems that the various communities in the province had raised to Parliament.
Malema said the EFF would expose corruption and looting in the province and claimed that the Buffalo City council had become so corrupt that people had to resort to sleeping with councillors to secure jobs.
Malema called the ruling party lazy and lethargic and lacking the will to serve the poorest people of the country. He added that the EFF was young and energetic and wanted to deal with service delivery issues and listen to the will of the people.
Malema has once again proven to be a skilled politician by using the EFF's anniversary as a way to campaign, celebrate and drum up support for his party ahead of the 2019 general election.
