Malema calls on South Africans to 'tweet from the picket lines'

The EFF leader says South Africans should not stop at social media to express their concerns about corruption.

EFF leader Julius Malema briefed the media in Johannesburg on 04 February 2016 on President Jacob Zuma's claims that he will pay back some of the money spent on upgrades to his Nkandla homestead. Picture: Christa Eybers/EWN.

JOHANNESBURG - Economic Freedom Fighters' (EFF) leader Julius Malema says South Africans should not stop at social media to express their concerns about corruption in the country.

He's called on ordinary South Africans to march for the removal of President Jacob Zuma.

Malema says he will be taking part in the march to the Constitutional Court on Tuesday, which is where the Nkandla matter will be heard.

"If you tweet about it, you write about it on Facebook while sitting comfortably in your bed and call that revolutionary action. It is not. Action is on 9 February. So, stop tweeting from your bed, come and tweet from the picket lines."

This week the president announced he's prepared to pay back some of the money spent on his Nkandla home.

His proposal to the Constitutional Court resulted in a deadline for Public Protector Thuli Madondela, who authored the first Nkandla report, the Democratic Alliance (DA) and the EFF, to respond.

Yesterday the EFF rejected Zuma's proposal, while the DA is yet to file its reply, but has until 4pm today to do so.

The Public Protector has said no settlement in the Nkandla saga can be reached without the powers of her office being reaffirmed by the highest court in the land.

The (EFF) also is demanding a new audit of how much non-essential features at Zuma's home cost the taxpayer.
