‘We want justice now.
We want our land now. We want jobs now.
We demand the economy now’The EFF has widened its scope for expropriation of land, saying it will also target game farms, according to party leader Julius Malema as he launched his party’s manifesto yesterday. Malema told supporters in Soshanguve, Tshwane, yesterday that the first nationalisation experiment would focus on bringing game farms under state control.
The strategy appears to be an attempt to fight back against white landowners accused of converting their properties to game farms to try to hike up the market value and frustrate land reform. In another new shift, Malema indicated on Friday that the EFF would be in government in Tshwane metro later in the year, hinting at possibly toppling the governing DA in the municipality.
Speaking at the EFF gala dinner in Pretoria, Malema told guests that the EFF would have members of the mayoral committees (MMCs) in both Tshwane and Johannesburg councils, which are now under DA control.
