Malema meets traditional leaders in Moletji, Limpopo – SABC News

Time to read: 3 minutes

Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) leader Julius Malema met with Kgoši Kgabo Moloto III and traditional leaders at Moletji Moshate, outside Polokwane, Limpopo.

This is part of the EFF’s preparation campaign towards the “Tshela-Thupa” demonstration. The party’s final election event will be held on Saturday at the Peter Mokaba Stadium in Polokwane.

EFF leader Julius Malema began his election campaign in Moletjie by meeting traditional leaders. He has asked them to support his party in the upcoming general elections.

Malema says the Motetjie community has been neglected for too long.

“I was reminding them of what they already know. Their suffering from water and lack of electricity, no toilets and no proper roads, the struggle of our children in schools, and reminding them that they were actually locked inside their homes with their communities and promised to be taken care of by the ANC government . Instead of giving them food parcels, they gave them a million graves, so I appealed to our people to vote for the EFF if they need real change. Moletji is an abandoned area and people only remember it during elections.” says Malema.

Malema also addressed party supporters at the local sports ground. He also referred to the conflict between his party and ANC supporters in the Juju Valley informal settlement in Seshego last week. An eight-year-old girl has been hospitalized after being hit by a stray bullet.

“That was extremely wrong. I don’t understand why the EFF reacted to a provocation because if they had asked me at the time, I would have asked them to never allow themselves to be provoked by anarchists. People prospering through disruption, shooting people and all that was horrible. The Mayor of Polokwane must take full responsibility for his actions. He took out a firearm in the Juju Valley and attacked people who were throwing stones at them,” adds Malema.


Malema has also praised the decision of Norway, Spain and Ireland to recognize Palestine as an independent state. She believes this will lead to Israel’s isolation.

“That is a very progressive movement. That is what we are going to do when we take office. We are going to fight for the people of Palestine. We are going to eliminate the Israeli embassy in South Africa because we cannot share territory with the madrassa. In fact, Parliament has agreed with us on that point and a majority, more than two-thirds, of Parliament voted in favor of that decision to withdraw the Israeli embassy. Therefore, the victory of the EFF will be dedicated to the oppressed nation of Palestine,” explains Malema.

The EFF leader says the village of Moletši has long been forgotten because it has no access to water and sanitation. He says community members must use the power of voting to see change.
