The leader of the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) Julius Malema visited Dithakong village and later addressed hundreds of youthful supporters in Mothibistad sports ground on June 28, 2016.
Accompanied by some of his parliamentarians, provincial and regional leadership, the EFF president encouraged his followers to desist from violence and cast their votes wisely to end the ANC rule he described as a shame to the electorate. Mr Malema said that the government is robbing the elderly and the poor from the very little they are getting from pension and social grants. He gave many scenarios that impacted negatively in the development of communities and directly to the households. He said that it was ironic that university lecturers and its top administration has lucrative incentives that enable their children to go to the university for free or at greatly reduced fees but a mere cook at the same institution is forced to pay full fees for his child. He rebuffed the practice as unfair playing ground to uplift the standard of the underprivileged families in the country. Malema promised that his administration won’t steal from the poor; instead he is going to empower and give them breathing space to self sustenance. He was confident that Ga-Segonyana municipality will be under his administration come August 3, 2016 and will root out corruption that has seen the municipality confronted with lots of financial challenges. The EFF regional structures have confidence in that the party is going to harvest more votes in the coming local government elections and turn around the fortunes of the community.
