Economic Freedom Fighter leader, Julius Malema, spent his birthday at the Entokozweni Crèche in Orange Farm. He wanted to put the importance of early childhood development in black communities in the spotlight.
Rather than having a fancy party at a fancy hotel or restaurant, Julius Malema chose to spend his 38th birthday in Orange Farm at the Entokozweni Crèche.
His party, the Economic Freedom Fighters, have helped to renovate the crèche that has been running since 1990.
The EFF leader unveiled the refurbished crèche with his lovely wife and some of the EFF's leadership by his side.
Briefly.co.za gathered that the crèche has 3 teachers and over 40 learners between 1 and 6.
Malema said the fact that his party helped out by renovating the crèche does not make it an "EFF crèche".
I want to thank the management of the creche for allowing us to make a contribution. Our contribution does not make this an EFF crèche. We are here for the children and we do not want anything in return.
We are here because we want to restore the dignity of the black child. We are here to elevate the issue of Early Childhood Development and highlight the plight of not only the Entokozweni Creche but of all the Early Childhood Development centres in all the townships.
We appreciate your hard work and recognize all the efforts that you have put in renovating this creche. We care about black people and restoring the dignity of the black child.
The EFF shared the occasion on social media. Here are some of the snaps they shared of the crèche before and after their contribution:
