Malema Says People Must Stop Having Babies in Order to Get Grants


Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) leader Julius Malema is seen at the protest movement's launch on Thursday, 11 July 2013. The EFF was different to other African National Congress breakaway parties, the expelled ANC Youth League president said at Constitution Hill, Johannesburg."We are not like Agang [SA] and all of them... We have a completely different plan." This plan included the non-negotiable 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, Malema said. The EFF would hold a conference in Soweto on July 26 and 27 to work out its policies and manifesto.

EFF leader Julius Malema has reportedly said that people must stop having babies in order to receive grants.

He made the comments while addressing the Mabopane community in Tshwane.

Malema said only responsible adults should have children.

Malema was speaking to the community as part of his campaign tour ahead of the EFF’s manifesto launch this weekend. At the launch, the party is expected to finalise its election plans and present its policy platform.

While speaking in Tshwane, Malema shared other thoughts that were on his mind. He accused the government of failing to maintain public hospitals, saying they were falling apart.

He also added that EFF had managed to stamp out corruption in Tshwane. EFF is part of a coalition in the city alongside DA.

Malema also explained that the EFF would not be putting the face of any party leaders on its T-shirts or campaign materials, adding that the party is not about individuals.

“People don’t need T-shirts, they need jobs,” he added.

The EFF appears to be gearing up for its campaign ahead of the elections slated for May, we gathered.

While the past several months have seen the party embroiled in several scandals, including allegations of its involvement in the VBS looting scandal, Malema expressed confidence that EFF would do well at the polls.
