Malema has called on Angelo Agrizzi to reveal more names of individuals implicated in corruption.

He also said his political enemies have tried to link EFF to Bosasa corruption, but have failed to find evidence to back up their claims, Briefly.co.za learned.

The EFF leader has previously been critical of Agrizzi, referring to him as a criminal.

Malema made the comments while addressing a crowd in Hamanskraal. He also took aim at Cyril Ramaphosa, saying there was not much difference between him and Jacob Zuma.

Malema insisted that Ramaphosa had indirectly received R500 000 from Bosasa. 

He also suggested that Ramaphosa was not actually a billionaire. He said the president was just a front for business tycoon Johann Rupert and the Oppenheimer family. 

The speech was part of Malema's campaign tour ahead of the launch of the EFF's manifesto this weekend. Malema has made several fiery speeches while criss-crossing South Africa, firing many shots at the ANC in particular.

He also took thinly-veiled swipes at the ruling party when he told crowds not to let politicians buy their support with food packages and T-shirts. 

Despite the EFF facing corruption allegations of their own following Brian Shivambu's reported involvement in the VBS looting scandal, Malema expressed confidence that the EFF would do well at the polls.

He said earlier in the week that it was "scientifically proven" that the ANC and DA were losing support.
