KRAAIFONTEIN - Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) leader Julius Malema has promised free education, jobs, the quelling of nepotism and assurance of good governance should voters trust the red berets with their ballots.

Malema took several jabs at the African National Congress and Democratic Alliance while addressing supporters at the Blue Ridge sports field in Kraaifontein on Saturday afternoon.

“Whether you are rich or poor, you must go to the university free of charge,” he told the crowd.

He said he will help those in impoverished communities.

“Cape metro is government. Sassa is government. How can government give me money and say I’m poor? The same government comes back to take money in the name of water and electricity. It’s a contradiction that must be stopped.”

Some supporters said they looked forward to casting their ballots on 1 November, as they believe the red berets will bring change.
