Malema: We don’t want houses where when you step out of the bedroom, you’re already next to pots

Economic Freedom Fighters leader, Julius Malema is out and about, conducting the party's campaign for the upcoming local government elections. On Sunday he was addressing a community meeting at Regorogile in Thabazimbi. Just like all the political leaders, Malema is making all sorts of promises. Malema left many is stitches when he criticized RDP houses built by the ANC. He says the EFF has been donating decent houses and if they are voted by the masses, they want to build those type of houses. "We don’t want houses where immediately when you step out of your bedroom, you’re already next to the pots," Malema said.

Malema further promised that when the EFF takes over the municipality, the elderly who receive SASSA grant will no longer pay for water and electricity. His party will ensure that women are taken care of. He urged the elderly to refuse to go with their walking sticks to vote for a government that has repeatedly let them down. "You leave your children which do not work at home to go vote for a party which doesn't create jobs for your children," Malema said.

He further slammed the governing party for buying votes with mere Tshirts. "You can't be bought with a t-shirt. You've been wearing the t-shirt since 1994. What has it done for you?You can't eat a t-shirt and the t-shirt will not give you a job."

Malema was received with warmth in the municipality. Let's hope the promises he is making are real. He told the community members that in politics, they must keep changing their vote until a party that serves the interests of our people emerges. "The future belongs to you."
