EFF as one of those parties it keeps on promising people what they will do if they vote for them. According to SABC news,Julius Malema was addressing EFF student members in the Cape Metro in Bellville Cape Town ,as part of his party election campaign in the Western Cape. Malema says if his party is voted into power after the upcoming local government elections,he will introduce what he calls a graduation allowance as a salary for all unemployed graduates from various tertiary institutions .Addressing the students Malema says the incentive will go a long way in ensuring that those who are without work despite having university qualifications are financial supported while still looking for work. "There must be an allowance and it must be a proper allowance of a person who has graduated so many generations are not discouraged from going to school .They know if I don't go to school and I don't get employment ,government will give me a graduation allowance whilst they are still looking to create a post for. We must have a list of everyone who graduated and names follow them so that we know they graduated for what .But this government has no capacity to do that" . However,there are people who believe that this is just impossible promise I will listthe comments.
