Economic Freedom Fighters Leader Julius Malema says they were not shocked about the Democratic Alliance (DA) statement on homeless people because majority of them are black people and the DA has never had black people’s interest at heart.

Malema says they will not keep voting with the DA and their relationship with the DA is finished.

“Power sharing means give and take, we have voted with them since 2016, still the DA does not appreciate that.”

Malema says they will continue to put motion and if other parties are interested in voting with them, they should not expect the EFF to vote for them in return.

“We can’t stop putting motions, other parties maybe interested to vote for EFF motion but they should not expect the same in return, we would rather put our motions and lose.” said Malema.

Malema added that courts have created environments where political speech can be suppressed.

Malema referred to the incident where former Bosasa COO Angelo Agrizzi reached a settlement of R200 000 for using the K-word.

“It is less costly to use the K-word but more expensive to speak politics.”

In a statement in March, Malema described Trevor Manuel’s involvement in SARS’ Edward Kieswetter seletion process as “nepotism” and “corrupt” and he was ordered by the court to pay R500 000.

Malema says they would not mind to have Johannesburg Mayor Herman Mashaba as an EFF mayor because he does not have political attitude.

“He looks at things if they can work, can we try it, even if it comes from the enemy camp, that type of an attitude helps” added Malema.
