EFF’s manifesto

Julius Malema said the EFF’s manifesto was produced through thorough consultations with communities across the country.

JOHANNESBURG - EFF leader Julius Malema says the party’s manifesto is not a book of promises but a contract of commitments that will be implemented should the party be elected to govern municipalities.

With clear goals and deadlines, the party’s manifesto objectives range from land reform to the provision of public facilities such as swimming pools in poor communities.

Malema and other party leaders unveiled the manifesto at a rally in the Johannesburg city centre.

Malema said the EFF’s manifesto was produced through thorough consultations with communities across the country as he cited several challenges that were raised.

He promised that EFF municipalities would formulate policies for land reform.

"Every EFF municipality will have a land and agricultural development directorate to prioritise availing land to needy citizens".

He also touched on the sensitive subject of graves, saying that land will be provisioned for this task as more and more townships in the country warn that they are running out of burial space.

"And we will expropriate unused land to allocate burial site for the people of Hammanskraal and the people of Soweto and everywhere else where people need cemeteries".

The party will be contesting the local government polls for the second time on 1 November.
