Malema hits out at ANC and DA for flashy campaigns

EFF leader Julius Malema has criticised the DA and the ANC for their ostentatious election campaigns and lack of community engagement.

On the eve of municipal elections, Malema thanked all the unpaid EFF volunteers for their commitment to the campaign, reports EWN's Barry Bateman.

Speaking at the IEC's National Results Centre in Tshwane, Malema says their campaign has been focused on the "grass roots" level, Bateman explains.

He hit out at the ANC and DA, and says it was showed that parties are aplenty when its about their great election posters and how much money they have spent.
