The EFF leader added that certain party structures would be dismantled and begun again from scratch. One of these is the party's structure in Limpopo, according to Eyewitness News. 

He said this was because the party was disappointed by its performance in Limpopo, adding that "there is a problem there".

Similarly, Malema slammed some of the party's Free State leadership. He said that they were lazy and had not been innovative enough with their campaign strategy in the province. 

Malema also spoke about his goals for his party's MPs. The EFF has signicantly increased its share of Parliamentary seats, with 44 in the National Assembly and 9 in the National Council of Provinces.

However, he stressed that up to 90% of the EFF MPs from the previous Parliament would be replaced.

He said that during this Parliament, the EFF would push harder for its manifesto to be implemented, Briefly.co.za has gathered.

Among these is his commitment to amend Section 25 of the Constitution to allow for land expropriation without compensation.
