Malema said that Ramaphosa belongs in prison, not the Union Buildings. He also lashed out at other ANC officials like Bathabile Dlamini, Novumla Mokonyane and Paul Mashatile, saying they were corrupt.

Malema said that black South Africans were forced to pay the price for government corruption. He went on to promise that corruption would be heavily punished under an EFF government. 

Additionally, he pledged to his supporters that ANC leaders linked to corruption would be jailed if the EFF took power, according to Eyewitness News.

He said that land expropriation would be his government's first priority, but thereafter it would be ensuring that Jacob Zuma and Ramaphosa are put behind bars.

Malema also accused Ramaphosa of being lost and of having taken a "wrong turn", Briefly.co.za has gathered. 

"Zuma will be the first, followed by Ramaphosa because the spirit of the miners who were killed in Marikana will not rest while Ramaphosa sits in the Union Buildings," Malema said.
