- Julius Malema has claimed that the minds of ANC voters are "arrested"
- He also claims that the ANC told voters that the EFF would take away their social grants
- Malema also spoke out against the "worship of whiteness"
EFF leader Julius Malema says that the minds of South Africans who vote for the ANC have been "arrested".
He made the comments while speaking at a Youth Day event at Fort Hare University.
Malema said the EFF's struggle was to "liberate the mind".
Malema also claimed that the ANC won over voters during election time with "food parcels" and blankets, but said that the party did not deliver more once the elections were over.
According to Herald Live, he also slammed those who had voted for the ANC in this year's election, saying that the ruling party had "created such huge unemployment".
Malema also claimed that the ANC had tried to scare off potential EFF voters by telling the electorate that the Red Berets would get rid of social grants if they took power.
Additionally, during his speech, Malema also argued for the importance of decolonisation, a topic he has spoken on several times.
However, Malema - no stranger to controversy - went even further in this address, saying he vowed to put an end to the "the worship of whiteness".
According to The South African, Malema also raised questions about forgiveness in post-apartheid South Africa.
For example, he questioned why apartheid figures like FW de Klerk had never apologised for the murder of Hector Pietersen, who was gunned down by police during the Soweto Uprising.
