- Julius Malema says the ANC has failed Winnie Madikizela-Mandela
- He added that the party was beyond saving
- The EFF leader said as well that Cape Town International Airport would be renamed in honour of Winnie "whether they like it or not"
Julius Malema has said that the situation at the ANC is so bad that not even Winnie Madikizela-Mandela could have saved it.
He made the comments while speaking to journalists outside a memorial event for Madikizela-Mandela.
The EFF leader slammed the ANC, saying they had failed Madikizela-Mandela and her legacy.
This came after the EFF's proposal to rename Cape Town International Airport in honour of Madikizela-Mandela failed. The ANC and other parties rejected the proposal, saying that Parliament did not have the power to make such name changes, Briefly.co.za has learned.
Malema, however, said that the name would be changed regardless, and said that an EFF election victory would be a game-changer for Winnie's legacy, according to The Sowetan.
He appeared to be implying that only the EFF truly understood and respected Madikizela-Mandela's legacy.
This is supported by the EFF's extensive praise of Madikizela-Mandela today to mark the one-year anniversary of her death.
Malema went on to condemn the ANC, accusing them of speaking poorly of Madikizela-Mandela, and said that Winnie herself had been unhappy with the ANC's state of affairs.
He even invoked Nelson Mandela, claiming that the former president himself could not rehabilitate the ANC.
