- The EFF leader also said that he had no problem with white people, only with "white arrogance"
Julius Malema has urged white South Africans to vote for the EFF.
He made the comments while speaking at his party's final campaign rally at Orlando Stadium over the weekend.
Malema said the EFF wanted to achieve equality for all citizens, including white people.
"We are not fighting against white people, we are fighting against white privilege," Malema said.
As a result, he urged white people - particularly white youth - to cast their ballots for the red berets.
Malema went on to say that EFF did not want black people to oppress whites. Instead, he said the party's goal was economic emancipation for all citizens. He claimed that he had no problem with white people, just older white people who were against equality, according to The Citizen.
Additionally, the EFF leader urged all eligible South Africans to cast their vote in this year's election, saying that those who did not vote were giving the ANC power.
Malema also ended off his speech by pledging to professionalise the civil service and to ensure that teachers are better paid.
He said this would be a way of restoring dignity to teachers, Briefly.co.za has gathered.
