Malema predicts ANC won't be ruling SA come 2019
Julius Malema says he is proud that his party has shaken up what he calls an arrogant ANC.
PRETORIA - Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) leader Julius Malema says he predicts that the African National Congress (ANC) will not be governing South Africa when the country takes to the polls in the 2019 national government elections.
The red berets, who are three years old, say they are happy with how they performed in this week's local government elections.
Malema says he is proud that his party has shaken up what he calls an 'arrogant ANC'.
He says the ruling party has been humbled.
"The message is clear and the writing is on the wall, and 2019 is going to be a serious challenge for the ruling party."
At the same time, Malema has made it clear that his party will never agree to a coalition with the ANC.
He also says the red berets will not compromise on their land policies if the Democratic Alliance (DA) approaches them.
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."
