EFF leader, Julius Malema, led a scathing attack on the ANC with regards to loadshedding and the R23 billion Eskom bailout.
Julius Malema appeared in Court in Newcastle for the alleged contravention of the Riotous Assemblies Act two years ago.
The case has been postponed until the 8th July and a bullish Malema addressed followers outside of the court.
The Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) leader feels the recent loadshedding crisis was merely a ploy by Eskom and the African National Congress (ANC) to get more money from government coffers.
JacarandaFM shared the report and voice note on their website.
Briefly.co.za noted that Juju refuted the ANC’s constant references to the apartheid legacy being to blame.
Malema said, “Who built the power stations? It was an ANC company called The Chancellor House.”
He added, “It’s not Eskom. The problem is the deployed ANC cadres who are channelling money into the ANC company.”
Juju said, “They milk Eskom and when the money is finished, they switch off electricity and call it loadshedding.
“It’s not loadshedding. Loadshedding means load more money into our pockets.”
Malema highlighted that there hasn’t been loadshedding since the Annual budget speech.
According to Malema, upon Tito Mboweni’s announcement of the R23 billion financial aid to Eskom, the loadshedding woes suddenly disappeared into thin air.
He cautioned that loadshedding will return once the R23 billion has been spent.
Juju added, “R23 billion into the pockets of ANC people , now they switch on when the 23 billion finishes, they switch off and they say load-shedding, more money that corruption we are dealing with. Elect the EFF on the 8 May so we can have the machine running and giving you electricity through and through non-stop."
