Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) leader Julius Malema says that the ANC will lose Gauteng in the next national elections, and the ruling party should blame that on president Jacob Zuma.
South Africa’s next election will take place in 2019 when the country will go to the polls to elect a new Parliament and new Provincial Governments.
“They’re unable to discipline Zuma. They must know that in 2019 the EFF will remember during coalition talks. We will remember the Parliament beatings,” Malema said at a press briefing in Braamfontein on Tuesday, referring to the State of the Nation Address in which the party was violently removed from the house.
“Gauteng is gone. There’s no other chance of the ANC taking this province. Keeping Zuma is eating at their votes. We will remember their torture and beatings when we take coalition and negotiation talks. We will show them videos,” Malema said.
“South Africans who are not happy with us will thank us later. You will thank us for protecting the constitution,” the politician said.
