South Africa: Malema in Emfuleni - 'Let's Lose Elections On Principle'

On Thursday 21 March, the EFF took up the Dlomo Stadium in Emfuleni, where leader Julius Malema told supporters that if the party loses the national elections in May, it must be on principle.

Julius Malema has told supporters that he would not mind losing the elections if he did so on principle. Speaking to thousands of EFF supporters at the Dlomo Stadium, in Emfuleni, Gauteng, Malema said the EFF was not going to Parliament to be corrupt or steal, but that the party was headed there to defend the rights of black people.

"Let's lose the elections on principle. If telling the truth will lose us elections, then let it be," said Malema.

"We will defend the rights of black people who continue to suffer at the hands of whites," he said. "Let's not gather to lie, like some," Malema said.

The EFF leader said the ruling party thrives on corruption and that the EFF was taking all the keys to the safe.

"We will also take the keys to Emfuleni Municipality because it's being run by corrupt people," said Malema. He said the party will easily take Gauteng should the people of Emfuleni Municipality vote EFF.
