Malema: We will help our wards, we won't rely on the municipality

Economic Freedom Fighter leader, Julius Malema, says his party will directly provide services to the wards they won and not rely on municipalities.

We are going to help in the wards where the EFF has won, we will not rely on the municipality. Because we know, where the EFF has a ward, such a ward is going to be a victim of those in power. So we have to somehow find a way of ensuring that ward gets support and we are going to do that.

Julius Malema, EFF leader

Our wards must be ready to receive some type of assistance from the EFF.

Julius Malema, EFF leader

In a press briefing at the ROC, Malema said his party will not enter into any coalitions that demand strict conditions, so as not to compromise what EFF supporters believe in.

Don't undermine the will of the people. Even if there is no outright winner, the indication will be clear on who the people prefer in that area. Don't use your position to reverse the will of the people.

Julius Malema, EFF leader

He says winning his ward in Seshego in Limpopo was a sign of confidence from people in his community.

It shows that one has a good relation with the people he lives with.

Julius Malema, EFF leader

You ought to own the confidence from the people who know you from your childhood. I have got my neighbours mandate, I don't know about the other side.

Julius Malema, EFF leader
