EFF leader Julius Malema on Thursday promised supporters in Rustenburg that President Jacob Zuma would be arrested and put in jail.
“Zuma is going to prison. We are going to arrest and put him in jail, and take Nkandla and turn it into a college. There is nothing that stops us from taking Nkandla.”
He said the only thing that prevented Zuma from being locked up was that he was a sitting state president.
“When we said Zuma is going to pay back the Nkandla money people thought we were playing. We said the Gupta must leave the country, they have now left. Zuma is going to jail,” he said to the applause of the crowd.
A large crowd of EFF supporters and members had turned up to listen to Malema at the Rustenburg taxi rank.
Rustenburg was Malema’s last stop on his campaign trail in the North West. He spent three days in the province in a bid to drum up support for the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) ahead of the August 3 local government elections.
Malema appealed to party supporters not to burn schools or municipal buildings during protests.
“Do not burn schools, do not destroy infrastructure, after your torched this building the mayor still remains the mayor, the council is not removed and you have burnt clinics and schools.”
He said residents have the power to remove councillors and mayors without destroying buildings.
“You have the power to remove them. Vote them out on August 3, do not burn building.”
