Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) leader Julius Malema is seen at the protest movement's launch on Thursday, 11 July 2013. The EFF was different to other African National Congress breakaway parties, the expelled ANC Youth League president said at Constitution Hill, Johannesburg."We are not like Agang [SA] and all of them... We have a completely different plan." This plan included the non-negotiable principles of land expropriation and nationalisation of mines, both without compensation. The EFF sought to move away from a discourse of reconciliation to one of justice, Malema said. The EFF would hold a conference in Soweto on July 26 and 27 to work out its policies and manifesto.

South African opposition leader and founding leader of the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) party Julius Malema has sent his condolence message following the death of former prime minister Morgan Tsvangirai.

In a strongly worded statement, Malema says although he did not agree with Tsvangirai’s politics he admits that Tsvangirai defeated former President Robert Mugabe and was prevented from ruling by the regime.

He urges South Africa to learn from Zimbabwe’s mistakes, saying the will of the people should always be respected.

Malema revealed this while contributing to the debate on the State of the Nation Address.  Here is the video
