EFF leader Julius Malema passed some strong comments on the Manifesto Consultation Assemblies during his interviewed on eNCA on Thursday.
The EFF have set out to create a manifesto that the “people will own”.
On Thursday, prior to the interview, the EFF had taken to Soweto to gain the opinion of the elderly and people with disabilities.
The EFF is known for its militancy in regards to the way in which government makes its changes. In the planning of their new manifesto, the EFF has consulted with variety of different people and possible voters, in Mzansi.
Briefly.co.za learnt that comrade Julius stated that “the disabled people are not being listened to” and that is why they are taking their time to understand the struggles of all of Mzansi, as we all have face different struggles.
The EFF is set on creating a manifesto that ‘the dejected masses of our people can see themselves in’.
He then explained how the elderly are being neglected. ‘Grannies have been crying’ as they feel that they have been neglected by the government of whom they fought for.
“We are neglected by a government we have voted for and encouraged our children to vote for. Today they do not know us, they are swimming in a pool of luxury and they have forgotten the poor of the poorest,” Julius conveyed what the elderly had said.
Julius then went on to reinforce a statement that he has given multiple times, stating that the EFF is “a government in waiting” and that they will in a way that is “based on the will of the people”.
The “dejected” South Africans are not the only focus of the EFF. Today, they are out to hear the thoughts of the big players in the financial sector in Sandton.
Julius made it clear that the EFF is doing anything it takes, covering every aspect and area, and sticking their fingers into bowls that no government has before, to ensure that, when they rule, they will be equipped to do it in the best interest of the people.
