EFF leader Julius Malema says the use of water tanks is the reason corruption thrives in the Mamusa Local Municipality.

This follows allegations by some ANC leaders that water provision in the municipality is being sabotaged to ensure perpetual water tank use, so that certain people could benefit. The EFF leader was addressing party supporters at a rally held at the Ipelegeng township, near Schweizer-Reneke.

This as the EFF wraps up its campaign programmes ahead of the upcoming by-elections.
