I plan to retire at 55, says Julius Malema

EFF pioneer Julius Malema will fill in as the party's leader however long its individuals need him in the position. 

Malema, who is the originator of the party and has been at its rudder since it was established in 2013, told the SABC on Tuesday that while he has no arrangement to remain in governmental issues endlessly, he will remain EFF president however long the party needs him. 

He was talking about the party's statement dispatched last week in the number one spot up to the neighborhood government races on November 1. 

"I will likely leave when I am 55. Keep in mind, I came into this thing when I was nine. I'm not staying put for eternity. I need my children to have a unique kind of energy, I need my family to have a unique kind of energy and however long I am the place where I am, they will consistently be Julius Malema's kids ..." he said. 

Malema said he doesn't prefer the Western meaning of political service time boundaries. 

"On the off chance that the EFF chooses me to be its leader for the third, fourth and fifth time, I will be accessible until I go to retirement. There is no service time boundary I'm not going to characterize terms as indicated by pilgrim radical meanings of terms."
