JOHANNESBURG - While Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) leader Julius Malema has made it clear that his party will never agree to a coalition with the African National Congress (ANC), he also says the red berets will not compromise on their land policies if the Democratic Alliance ( DA) approaches them.

Malema says he predicts that the ANC will not be governing South Africa after the 2019 national government elections.

He also says he is happy with how the red berets have performed in this week's local government elections.

The EFF leader has also clarified though, that his party is not looking for a coalition.

"There can't be conditions if there are no negotiations on the coalitions. We're here to tell you that we're done. We accept the elections. To the IEC, congratulations on a free and fair election. We are happy."
