They want to destroy the mighty EFF, we are not shaken - Malema

Political parties host final rallies ahead of elections

WATCH LIVE: Economic Freedom Fighters election rally

Malema says the fight is for equality and against white privilege.

The EFF is a party for the people, Malema says.

Malema: "Police officers, it is like you do not know where the thugs are, come to me I have a list. They are in Luthuli House and in the Union 
Buildings."

Malema: "We want an educated nation. We don't want millions on social grants, we want millions on graduation day. Why are you bragging about social grants? We want to brag about how many people are graduating and how many jobs we are giving them."

Ramaphosa must increase the quality of ANC T-shirts so they can clean properly, says Malema.

Here's something to ponder on:

"We want an educated nation." - Malema

Malema: "They thought we are a Mickey Mouse organisation but now they realise we are a force to be reckoned with. You cannot talk about the future without talking about EFF. We are the future of South Africa."

Koko Sarah shall lives on in Malema's heart.

For Koko Sarah.

“No matter how prepared you think you are for the death of a loved one, it still comes as a shock, and it still hurts very deeply.” – Billy Graham

Reminder: The Inkatha Freedom Party is also holding its rally in KZN.

"Let us join hands and grow South Africa together!" - and with that ANC presdient Cyril Ramaphosa concludes his address.


Ramaphosa: They [women] bear the brunt of poverty and face discrimination in the workplace. They are subjected to the most brutal gender-based violence and femicide. Today, as the ANC, we recommit ourselves to a truly non-sexist South Africa."

Ramaphosa this is what the ANC has done so far, among others.

He says 'askies' to South Africans.

Ramaphosa says they know they've erred.

Ramaphosa: “Today, as the ANC, we say to the people of South Africa we have heard you.”

"The young people in our country want to work, they don't want handouts. They say experience [as a job requirement] must be done away with and we agree with that," says Ramaphosa.

Ramaphosa urges supposers to vote for the ANC on 8 May, saying they will be voting for a "new era of growth, new renewal and also for transformation."

ANC president Cyril Ramaphosa has taken to the podium to address the crowd gathered at the Ellis Park Stadium for the party's final Siyanqoba Rally.

Here's what you can expect from the ANC's rally:

Reminder: Here's where you can catch the EFF's rally live:

In other news: The IFP's rally is also underway in Ulundi, KwaZulu-Natal.

WATCH LIVE: African National Congress election rally

That's it for today, let's pick this up again tomorrow when the Economic Freedom Fighters and the African National Congress have their final rallies before South Africans take to the polls on 8 May.

“I’m ready for the Union Buildings, fresh air.” - and that's how ACM leader Hlaudi Motsoeneng concludes his speech in Harrismith.

"In us, you have people who can build South Africa. Our economy should be owned by our people and when it comes to the land issue, all the investors from outside should not buy our land. We should lease land to them."

Motsoeneng says: “We want a crime free society, the only people who should
carry guns are the police, so they can look for people who commit crime. They
should deal with crime properly. We want 24-hour police patrol, you can even
wear your mini skirt at night [and feel safe].”

Speakers at the ACM rally say Motsoeneng is the right person to lead the country and have urged supporters to go vote for the party: "Our X will be next to ACM come 8 May".

African Content Movement leader Hlaudi Motsoeneng arrives for his party's final rally in Harrismith, Free State.

UDM leader Bantu Holomisa has urged supporters to go out in their numbers and vote for his party.

And with that, Maimane concludes his speech to loud cheers from the crowd.

In other news: The EFF has announced that Julius Malema's grandmother has died.

Maimane is out here planting inspiration...

Here's another view to consider. 

“A simple choice lies before us:  We can either choose five more years of corruption and empty promises, or we can choose CHANGE!" - Maimane says.

The ANC was "once a movement, but today they are a monument – a mere relic of the past.” - maimane adds

A moment most have been waiting for: Maimane is making his way to the stage and will address hundreds of supporters that have gathered there.

DA leader Mmusi Maimane is expected to address the crowd shortly.

The DA's John Moodey has said his part.

Hundreds of DA supporters have gathered at the Dobsonville Stadium, in Soweto, for the party's Phetogo Rally. It's last rally ahead of 8 May elections.
