South Africa EFF’s Malema Wants ‘Incapable’ ANC out of LG Elections as Party Launches Manifesto
Julius Malema, leader of the party that is often described as “an anti-imperialist and leftist movement emphasised the party’s capabilities of picking up the slack of what he called the current “incapable” local government.
“Our manifesto is based on the truthful observation that our people are landless, our people are jobless, our manifesto is based on the truthful observation that local government is incapable, our manifesto is based on the truthful observation that many people in South Africa still don’t have access to water.”
The party vowed to create jobs for the youth instead of giving tenders “to the connected few”.
Formed in 2013, the party’s manifesto is based on seven pillars for economic freedom.
They are the nationalisation of strategic economic sectors without compensation, the expropriation of land without compensation, building state and government capacity to abolish tenders, free and quality education, healthcare, houses and sanitation, protected industrial development to create sustainable jobs, developing the African economy, and fostering an accountable, corrupt-free government and society.
