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.
