At a media briefing on Thursday, Malema shared the EFF’s list of demands, including an end to load-shedding, a reduction in fuel prices, the removal of some ministers and the immediate arrest of Ramaphosa.
According to the red beret leader, a shutdown would force the government to take steps to address issues facing the country.
“The national shutdown which the EFF will partake in will not be a candle holding and white flags type of a shutdown. It will be a shutdown that must communicate to the sitting government that enough is enough.”
A date for the shutdown is yet to be announced.
