- EFF leader, Julius Malema, has come forward to accuse ANC councillors from the Northern Cape of asking for sex from citizens, in exchange for jobs and houses
- Malema made this statement at a recent Women’s Day address in Springbok
- The EFF President went on to say that the red berets do not tolerate this kind of behaviour
President of the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF), Julius Malema, recently made some controversial statements at a Women’s Day celebration in the Northern Cape.
According to EWN, Malema accused the province’s African National Congress (ANC) councillors of asking citizens for sex in exchange for services and job opportunities.
“Here in the Northern Cape in municipalities where the ANC governs, before they hire women, they want to sleep with them. They don't give you jobs, house and tenders, they only do so after sleeping with [you],” Malema told the crowd in Springbok, Northern Cape.
Briefly.co.za found out that, earlier this year, a Northern Cape ANC councillor was found guilty for abducting and sexually assaulting two women in the area.
Malema went on to outline other corrupt dealings that were going on in the province, including the presence of 'dop systems' where workers weren’t paid properly.
The EFF President firmly told the attendees at the Women’s Day event that his party does not condone this kind of behaviour.
“There were places where women are paid with alcohol especially in the farms and not money, we in the EFF do not agree with that nonsense,” Malema declared.
