EFF leader Julius Malema announced Monday afternoon at the conclusion of the EFF’s National Assembly at Nasrec south of Johannesburg that the EFF will build and establish a private school within the next year – preferably in Alexandra, east of Johannesburg.
According to Malema, the Winnie Mandela School will have all amenities, but will not charge any school fees. He says the best teachers will be recruited from across Africa to compete with other top private schools such as Crawford College and Curro.
Malema warned that 2020 for forces on the left of the political spectrum will be a year of action. The EFF plans, together with sympathetic unions such as Amcu, to occupy Eskom’s properties in order to demand reliable electricity supply, as well as to oppose Eskom’s privatization.
Due to the lack of democracy in Swaziland, the EFF will occupy border posts between Swaziland and South Africa. The EFF is also going to launch a campaign against banks and the financial sector because, according to Malema, there is too much power in this sector.
He also drew on merger with the ANC after Pres. Cyril Ramaphosa called him.
Malema told the audience of about 4,000 Ramaphosa had just called him before: “He congratulated me and said the ANC can learn a lot from the EFF on how to organize rallies.
“He congratulated me for being unopposed as EFF leader, saying he wished it could happen to him, but he didn’t think it would,” Malema said.
“I was pleased when he announced some of the Fees Must Fall activists are going to be released. But he is not our friend because he sells our country’s assets, ”Malema said.Malema
