The leader of the Economic Freedom Fighters has claimed, without evidence to support his assertions, that the governing ANC will use load-shedding to steal votes.

While on the campaign trail in the Eastern Cape, EFF leader Julius Malema, without evidence, claimed the ANC was planning to use rolling blackouts to ‘steal votes’

was the reason he had avoided the consequences of the ANC’s step-aside resolution.“He is taking us for fools… Only those who don’t support Ramaphosa are told to step aside,” he said. Just say: ‘Enough is enough’Malema also took aim at the Ramaphosa administration, which had failed to live up to its own motto of corruption-busting.

“This is a criminal syndicate … They will come and ask you to vote for them; vote for [Nelson] Mandela. You must tell them Madiba is resting in peace. Talk to us about what you have done. Mabuyane is stealing money from funerals. They are no longer ashamed. Those are the people that we must stop on 1 November. How do you come out of a pit toilet and vote for the very same evidence? Here in the Eastern Cape, you live with the evidence of what the ANC has done. You must stop them and when you wake up just say enough is enough,” he said. 

Malema pleaded with Mdantsane constituents to stop being “hypnotised” by ANC T-shirts, saying that residents should start loving the future of their children. “They give you a T-shirt, you forget all your problems. You forget you don’t have a road,” he said.  headtopics.com

Addressing the Democratic Alliance, Malema said the ANC listened to EFF ideas only when they were pedalled by the official opposition’s leader,John Steenhuisen.“I am more qualified than John — politically, academically — in all respects I’m more qualified than John Steenhuisen. They will listen to him because he is white. They love their whites,” he said.

Malema reiterated promises the party made in its manifesto, saying people receiving a grant from the South African Social Security Agency (Sassa) should not have to pay for basic services. The EFF manifesto states: “In every EFF municipality, households which depend on social grants will qualify for free basic services without having to register on the indigent database.” 

Since 2001, municipalities have provided basic services, such as water and electricity, free or at subsidised rates to the poorest families. “Indigent households”, as they are known, are required to register on a database. Municipalities are partially subsidised by the national government to cover indigent funding.

The red berets’ leader said, under an EFF government, Sassa beneficiaries will also be exempt from paying for other municipal services. In addition, Malema called for the school feeding scheme to be extended to universities, saying that the government “must give students the basics and once given the basics we are guaranteed they will complete their education”.  headtopics.com
