Don't kill our people for power - Malema

POLOKWANE - The Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) says it will not convince people to vote for it simply by offering food parcels and free t-shirts.

Malema addressed around 50,000 people at the Peter Mokaba Stadium at the party's final Tshela Thupa rally on Sunday.

Party leader Julius Malema said voters should demand more from politicians.

"Let us play a fair game, let us not play a man. Let us play the ball, let us not kill our people because we've uncontrollable ambition for power."

Malema told supporters that his party is the only one that can challenge the African National Congress (ANC).

He said the EFF will increase social grants and have a 24-hour clinic in every ward.

Malema said the EFF may only be three-years-old but he thinks it's shaken up the century-old ANC.

"The EFF can take the ANC toe-to-toe. They are in Ellis Park today, we're in Peter Mokaba today. A party of three years taking on a party of 104 years."

Malema said EFF members were peaceful during campaigning while the ANC had a string of politically-motivated killings.
