We will work with the ANC if they arrest Jacob Zuma, says Julius Malema

The EFF would consider a coalition with the ANC if the ruling party’s next leader declared an end to institutional corruption and promised to charge President Jacob Zuma with corruption.

The EFF and ANC should be working together but what stands between them “is institutionalised corruption by the governing party”.

This is what EFF leader Julius Malema told the Sowetan newspaper in a wide-ranging interview as he reflected on his party turning four years old on Wednesday.

Malema said ANC leaders were busy campaigning to replace Zuma in December but none of the contenders was serious about fighting corruption.

He singled out Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa’s campaign, saying he claimed to be against corruption and wanted to rebuild the ANC.
