Malema: We will expose Zuma
EFF leader Julius Malema says his party's mission is to expose Zuma's lies.
JOHANNESBURG - Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) leader Julius Malema says his party's mission is to expose all the untrue statements President Jacob Zuma made in his State of the Nation address, particularly that South Africa is a far better place to live in than it was before 1994.
Malema was speaking at Stoffel Park in Mamelodi east this afternoon where he unveiled the EFF's campaign truck ahead of the manifesto launch in Thembisa next weekend.
Malema told hundreds of his supporters Zuma lacks confidence in his own administration and that he rather chose to highlight successes of Nelson Mandela and Thabo Mbeki in his State of the Nation address.
The party leader accused Zuma of lying to South Africans when he said 95 percent of the population had access to water, sanitation and decent homes. Malema added there is no such thing.
He says the reality is that 1.4 million people lost their jobs since Zuma became president.
Malema insisted the only thing Zuma has managed to do right is dance.
"How many times did he dance since 2009? That is the type of report we want, because that is the only thing he did properly - dancing. But he has never provided services to our people."
Malema told residents of the flood-prone Stoffel Park if they vote for him, each ward councillor would have designated equipment at their house which will fix roads after they have been eroded by floods.
