[WATCH] There will be no place for violence in EFF government - Julius Malema

'There will be no borders when the EFF is in government'

This is the promise the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) leader Julius Malema is making to South Africans.

Speaking to Eusebius McKaiser, Malema says decolonisation of education and other things must include the borders.

South Africa has had a history of xenophobic attacks against foreign nationals.

Malema warns that if foreign nationals are chased out of the country, tribalism will arise.

When you are done controlling the borders and removing the so-called foreigners in South Africa, You are going to start fighting a tribal war.

Julius Malema, Leader - EFF

The jobs will still not be there; the woman that you wanted will still not agree to you because you are scared to propose and blame it on other people.

Julius Malema, Leader - EFF

We don't believe in borders, they are artificial.

Julius Malema, Leader - EFF

Some people have characterised the EFF as a violent party. Malema says the society is furious and sometimes that anger shows up.

However, Malema promises that if they become the ruling party, there will be no violence from their government.

We are an angry society and bad things have happened to us, many people don't take that into consideration. We have gone through a lot of pain as black people and that anger shows itself from time to time.

Julius Malema, Leader - EFF

There will be no place for violence in the EFF government because violence is unjustifiable. Where violence raises its ugly head, a fighter should know that it is time to leave. If you do not have the capacity to calm the situation, then it is best to leave.

Julius Malema, Leader - EFF

McKaiser probed Malema on how they will achieve the 6% economic growth which they promised in their election manifesto.

We are first going the nationalise the land and give it to our people so that we increase the number of people producing food in South Africa.

Julius Malema, Leader - EFF

Not everyone is going to like our policy, just like how many do not like the current policies that govern our country. The current policy still has not attracted growth to prove that an alternative would not work.
