Economic Freedom Fighters leader Julius Malema is famed for telling it as it is and stayed true to form in an interview on Wednesday.
Malema spoke of his vision for the party and its founding principles, while emphasising that he runs a tight ship.
Ahead of its National People's Assembly where new leaders will be elected, Juju touched on politicians with questionable motives.
The charismatic leader says that he will not allow opportunism to undermine the vision and principles of the EFF.
In an interview with eNCA, Malema called for selfless cadres who want to join the party for the right reasons.
Juju said, "People express themselves freely, but they shouldn't undermine the founding manifesto of the EFF."
Malema added, "We need selfless cadres of our movement. We need cadres who are not opportunistic."
Briefly.co.za gathered that the EFF is open to floor crossing, provided the motive is not purely based on personal gain.
The party's second national conference will be held in Soweto.
