DURBAN - Julius Malema, the Commander in Chief of the Economic Freedom Fighters took the party's campaign to the residents of Durban in KwaZulu-Natal.
Malema wormed his way into the hearts of the community of Inanda that an EFF government will build them houses with flushing toilets and three bedrooms.
The leader of the Red Berets told residents that the party would do away with pit latrines because there are no white people or Indian people that make use of these kinds of toilets, according to TimesLIVE.
"If you don’t give whites and Indians outside toilets, why do you give it to our people?” asked Malema

Malema told residents that the African National Congress was treating them like animals because of the outside toilets it has built for them. He added that an EFF government will restore the dignity the ANC has stripped away from the people.
Malema encourages residents to occupy land
In regard to the three-bedroom houses the EFF plans to build, Malema told residents that land will be needed to build those houses and that they needed to find land and occupy it.
He told the community that they needed to occupy land that was close to towns. Malema added that occupying land closer to towns would ensure that their houses will be built faster.

Malema told the Inanda community that the first order of business for the EFF once in power will be ensuring that everyone working at municipalities have the necessary qualifications to occupy their positions, according to SABC News.
He told residents that people should get the job that they are qualified to do. Malema added that they will also look at people's salaries and ensure that people are earning according to their qualifications.
Mzansi reacts to Julius Malema's promise of houses in Inanda
Social media users think the EFF Commander in Chief is making empty promises and won't actually deliver the houses he is promising.
Here are some of their comments:
"The CIC is in competition against one's skin colour and promises things that he doesn't explain as to how much will they cost the country.Poor people who always believed in the Bushiris of this world, still believe this is achievable."
"Good question, an outside toilet in 2021 is an insult to the masses. It should come to an end."
"The Mercedes he is giving to the King could provide quite a few houses with indoor toilets."
"I guess Malema hasn't seen the new RDP (matchboxes) houses build by Ekurhuleni Mayor Masina in Thokoza and Katlehong. ANC has returned to pre-Apartheid housing style humiliating beneficiaries."
EFF leader Julius Malema defends Makhadzi for showing ANC support ahead of elections
Briefly News previously reported that Julius Malema has taken to social media to defend Makhadzi. The singer has been slammed for wearing ANC colours in honour of an invite she received from the party's president Cyril Ramaphosa.
Makhadzi took to social media to explain why she rocked the ruling party's colours recently. The Economic Freedom Party's leader told the Matorokisi hitmaker to stop trying to justify her decision to associate herself with the ANC ahead of the municipal elections on 1 November.
Taking to Twitter, Malema let Makhadzi know that she has a right to associate herself with the party of her choice. Julius Malema wrote:
"You don't need to explain yourself to anyone my sister, your freedom of association is protected by our Constitution. It's your choice and we should respect it."
