He was speaking at the EFF's provincial manifesto in Mahikeng on Saturday.

Malema says the North West is the home of the EFF and that the ANC failed people in Mahikeng to an extent that they longed for the Bophuthatswana government.

Bophuthatswana was one of 10 homelands during apartheid.

Malema says the EFF will bury corruption.

The party and the Democratic Alliance (DA) have laid separate criminal charges against the president following the release of Public Protector Thuli Madonsela's Nkandla report.

Meanwhile, the party also campaigned for votes in De Doorns in the Western Cape.

In late 2012 and early last year, the area was the scene of violent protests during a strike by farmworkers for better wages.

Some workers claimed to be earning as little as R69 per day.

Hundreds of hectares of vineyards were torched in Hex River Valley and in several other Western Cape farming communities late last year.

The EFF's Nazier Paulsen visited the area to speak to labourers.

"There is 12,500 hectares of table grape farms in the area and only 46 hectares are owned by black farmers. This cannot be the case in a democratic South Africa, there has been no transformation."
