Julius Malema has revealed his massive goal for the Economic Freedom Fighters, much bigger than just securing the presidency.
Speaking during the EFF's National People's Assembly in Johannesburg over the weekend, Malema detailed his vision for a united Africa.
While political parties champion to unseat the ruling ANC, Malema feels economic freedom should begin in SA:
“Our vision is not these small-minded things you’re thinking about; we want to lead Africa. We want a United States of Africa with one currency, economy, and judiciary."

While this dream may seem bold, Malema is not the first to have contemplated the idea.
Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi had shared this vision for a united continent, perhaps inspiring Malema's comments.
With attendants from Liberia, Malawi, and Namibia among the guests who attended the R32 million event, the plan could well be underway already.
Briefly.co.za reported that Julius Malema had been re-appointed as the leader of the party unopposed on Saturday.
EFF deputy president Floyd Shivambu had also managed to retain his position, with chairperson Dali Mpofu and secretary general Godrich Gardee failing to make the cut.
While Malema had predicted sour grapes following the election, the two former top six members seem to be taking their exclusion in their stride, as loyal to the Red Beret movement as ever.
