Malema visits Valhalla Park
The EFF leader says he is appalled by the living conditions in the Agstelaan informal settlement.
CAPE TOWN - Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) leader Julius Malema says he is appalled by the living conditions in some Western Cape areas.
Malema visited the Agstelaan informal settlement in Valhalla Park this afternoon after a fire ripped through shacks in the area in December, leaving 1,400 homeless.
This is Malema's first visit to the Western Cape as EFF leader. He is also expected to stop by Blikkiesdorp.
EFF provincial convener Nazier Paulsen says, "People are tired of the dire material conditions that they are subjected to. Malema cannot believe the conditions under which human being have to live in the Western Cape in the black and coloured communities."
Malema's visit comes as the Western Cape branch of the ANC is expected to launch its manifesto in Delft tomorrow.
The party has vowed to win back the province from the Democratic Alliance.
