DURBAN - Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) leader Julius Malema has again cracked the whip as his party prepares for what it’s described as watershed provincial and national elections.
Malema issued stern marching orders to EFF leaders at the party’s manifesto launch at the Moses Mabhida Stadium in Durban on Saturday.
This was as the party again warned that it will leave nothing to chance as it intensifies its bid to unseat the governing African National Congress from office.
He told thousands of supporters that the party would hold its leaders accountable for a poor performance in the build-up to the upcoming polls.
“We are the only organisation that is intolerant to mediocrity, corruption, lies and laziness, and we are the only organisation that punishes its own members for corruption, lies and laziness.”
It’s not the first time Malema took a hard stance on EFF leaders who failed to meet its targets.
A total of 18 party representatives were shown the door in 2023 after they failed to secure transport for the EFF’s 10th-anniversary celebration in Johannesburg.
“Those who are not loyal to the EFF must know that they do not have a seat on this stage. Your friendship to us and your accessibility to us is nothing else but loyalty to the founding manifesto of the EFF, its discipline and its code of conduct.”
