He also emphasised his dedication to fighting government corruption.

"When we take over, we are going to re-open Phala-Phala. We told you that President Cyril Ramaphosa has dollars under his mattress and his sofas, and you said we were lying. But the president himself said he’s going to pay back the dollars."

Malema reiterated the EFF's commitment to providing land and jobs to the masses, promising that these initiatives would be prioritised under his leadership.
