Julius Malema took to Alexandra this week to address supporters ahead of the May elections.

During his speech, Malema blamed the ANC for Alexandra's problems and also criticised white people in Sandton, who he said were doing nothing to help the township.

The EFF leader also reiterated his party's commitment to land reform and free education.

"If you want to know what the ANC has done, go to Alexandra," Malema told the gathered crowd at the stadium in Alexandra.

With the election only days away, Malema has been campaigning extensively and trying to hammer home his party's key policy promises. These include expropriation without compensation, as well as free education.

Recently, Malema has also put forward the idea of getting rid of borders and establishing what he calls a "United States of Africa" - an idea which is admittedly far more aspirational than practical. 

Malema also once again waded into the issue of race relations. During the rally, he said, " Let us build a solid foundation for an African child so that an African child will grow up not being scared of a white counterpart," according to Eyewitness News.

The EFF leader ended his speech by singing "Kiss the Boer", a slightly-edited version of the "Kill the Boer" song which had previously landed Malema in trouble, Briefly.co.za has gathered.
