Julius Malema has issued a stern warning to 'lazy' EFF leaders, saying that they should shape up or ship out. With the party enjoying relative success at the polls, the spotlight is trained on the EFF's leading politicians as they head into Parliament.
Julius Malema, leader of the Economic Freedom Fighters, has issued a warning to party leadership he deems as lazy.
Speaking during a media briefing yesterday, Malema insisted that it's shape up or ship out:
"The reality of the matter is that our Chair is a Senior Counsel, forever on consultation, forever in courts and doing those many other tings which are indirectly complimenting the course but it doesn't translate into strengthening the organization, so upon realizing that weakness we said we must zone in."
Briefly.co.za reported earlier that Chairperson Dali Mpofu may well have been in the firing line with Malema's comments, but Mpofu insisted that there is no bad blood between the two.
The EFF leader also revealed that party retentions will be discussed at the National People's Assembly later this year, where close-knit relationships would be under the spotlight, reports eNCA.
Malema also warned that no person was guaranteed their return when the EFF gathers for the conference.
