Malema launches his Economic Freedom Fighters

THE Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) will have firm anticorruption policies, leader Julius Malema said at its launch in Johannesburg yesterday.

“Our organisation is founded on the principle of anticorruption,” he said.

“No one found guilty of corruption … will wear the beret,” he said, sporting a bright red EFF-branded beret.

Malema is facing corruption charges in the Polokwane Magistrate’s Court.

He is accused of making nearly R4-million from corrupt activities and is out on bail of R10 000.

He also faces charges of fraud, corruption, money-laundering, and racketeering.

Yesterday Malema said thousands of South Africans had responded to the “clarion call” the EFF made on June 11, asking for contributions on “what is to be done”.

“It is no secret that an absolute majority of all those who have responded are saying that EFF should be a radical, left, anti-capitalist and anti-imperialist movement with an internationalist outlook that should contest elections in South Africa.”

The expelled ANC Youth League leader said the EFF was changing the political climate, as it was commonly held that it was “cold outside the ANC”.

“But we are making it warm outside the ANC.”

Attempts to discredit the fledgling organisation would not succeed, he said.

“We’ve got the will.

“We are not material-driven. You can take away everything but you cannot take our souls.”

Malema said the EFF was “not my organisation” and it did not “want to be worshippers of an individual”.

There was no such organisation as the ANC, as it had become the “ZANC”, as President Jacob Zuma had subsumed the ruling party.

“The organisation can’t call the president to order.”

Malema also drew a distinction between the EFF and other parties.

“We are not like Agang and all of them. We have a completely different plan.”

This plan included the nonnegotiable principles of land expropriation and nationalisation of mines, both without compensation.

The EFF sought to move away from a discourse of reconciliation to one of justice and would hold a conference in Soweto on July 26 and 27 to work out its policies and manifesto.

“[The EFF is] the people’s organisation, inspired by people’s suffering on the ground.”

It would embrace an “anticapitalist and anti-imperialist ideology”, and aspired to nonracialism and non-sexism.

While white capitalist monopoly was an enemy of the EFF, Malema said “no one is going to be driven into the sea”.

“You are going to be forced to share.”

The EFF was strongly opposed to foreign land ownership. “[There will] never be foreign ownership of land, that is what we will do when we take over.”

Malema appealed for donors to support the organisation, but said the EFF would remain a grassroots organisation, with “no fancy rallies”. — Sapa

  10. You are giving good inspiration to the young, there were many whites that were left dispense by the previous goverment, one just has to look at the white homless, and the wealfare homes where there children are taken. These whites deserve better, they too have been through the struggle with false hopes and promisses, they need to stand up and fight, stop been humble, your own kind still closes to door in your face, this has been the problem of the whites, they still are cowards, and hide behind those that feed them false sercurity. Those whites that are more fortunate need to open their arms to their fellow kind, and stop being pathic.

  12. I would like those of you to please take a look at what our organisation is attending to setup in Cape Town. Web Site – http://www.voh.org.

    I have e-mailed the EFF to become involved in the implementation ot this extremly much needed project, which will boost their campaing. At this present moment there is a heated debate between the ANC and DP in the Cape, finger pointing, and exposure of involvement of key persons with gangs. You know how it goes, you tell on me I tell on you story, and I will cover up for you.

    Your input would be valuble, please look at the web site before posting your comment, this project has taken six years todate, and is only now ready to proceed for implementing.

  36. Of course JUJU is a good speaker,brave and confident,but let South Africans look at the bright side of the story,SA Politicians wear the same cloth,if not all of them.He is an opportunistic puppet,noise maker who is impersonating Comrade Chris Hani to gain support.He must go back to the drawing board and learn,then he will know ukuthi politics are not childs play.A true leader never backs off no matter how hot the fire is burning.That is why we say Forward ever Backward never.No one owns the ANC it is owned by the people.He could have got support right inside the movement without running away and making noise from the roughters,thats why he was firstly voted president of the ANCYL because the youth saw true leadership in him.

  40. My name is jade Scott
    A 21 year old student in the western cape.
    Your EFF spokesperson Patrick Sindane messages saying “Honeymoon is over for white people in South Africa” and “To be a revolutionary you have to be inspired by hatred and bloodshed”.
    It brought chills down my spine.

    I understand the fact that us white people stole your land here in South Africa but this was a long time ago and i agree with you that the whites did steal your land and brought corruption into the country which is unfair. If you want people to stop living poorly then force them towards education and to work harder in life to build themselves up for better jobs and better living conditions. This will also help our economic system to grow. We all live together on this land and we all struggle.

    The people of South Africa is looking for a change for a brighter and stronger future instead of living with fear. We must all live together as equals! You must force education to our younger generation to build our country stronger and this includes all races.

    As a young and proud South African I have fear for my future.
    I fear now to walk to college and sleep in my own bed.
    When I speak I speak for all races that’s trying to make a successful future for ourselves.
    There is no need for hatred and bloodshed
    Let’s all work together as for we all are South African

  41. juju i’m 100% behind u bra, lets go to election n vote for our EFF for the change. can anyone send mi an membership form real can’t wait to be registered as EFF member
