ANC Suspended Secretary General Ace Magashule was spotted at EFF Rally.

As long as poverty and inequality persist in South Africa, the Freedom Charter will remain unrealized. This is according to EFF founder Julius Malema, who addressed a massive crowd at the party's Freedom Charter rally in Kliptown, Soweto, on Sunday. On Sunday, June 26, 1955, at a social event attended by over 3,000 people, the Freedom Charter was formally adopted.

Also present in Walter Sisulu Square to celebrate Freedom Charter Day was the ANC's suspended Secretary General, Ace Magashule. All are welcome at the EFF; SG simply couldn't think of a more fitting occasion. This demonstrates how important he considers Freedom Charter to be.

As far as anyone can tell, Magashule and Malema are now both huge fans of each other. You may recall that Malema slammed the ANC's public chief board (NEC) for requiring that pioneers facing criminal consequences step aside in 30 days or risk suspension. This occurred after Free State chief Magashule was suspended on defilement charges related to the highly publicized asbestos trial.

After the local government elections in South Africa last year, Malema revealed that his party in the KwaZulu-Natal province will be moving closer to the ANC's "RET powers" group in order to cast a ballot with them. Recently, Malema has been questionably promoting a number of RET figures. The EFF has been voting with everyone but the ANC in all districts, thus being in bed with the ANC RET group is a lucky second to "upset the circumstance."

Meanwhile, the EFF is the main organization to witness this historic day throughout the entire course of the freedom struggle. When asked about the possibility of political freedom in the country, Malema stated it wouldn't be recognized until there was economic opportunity for everybody.

Opportunity, he said a sea of red, rises to jobs and work security and that one high priority a task, no matter what their ability. "The EFF loves them taught, the ANC loves them uneducated - so it isn't providing you free schooling, yet is giving you R350 on the basis that it needs to keep you clueless," Malema remarked in reference to education and training.
