Julius Malema

Leader of the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF), Julius Malema has outlined the political party’s ambitious plan to run the country by 2019.

In Sunday’s episode of Talk To Al Jazeera, Malema told Al Jazeera’s Jonah Hull: “We want to take this country by 2019.”

“If we don’t take this country by 2019, we must be an official opposition, with a clear direction of taking over power. We are a government in waiting.”

Malema said that the EFF could see itself aligning with the DA. “We can work with the DA, we can work with the UDM, we can work with anyone who wants to restore the dignity of black people.

Malema warned however that the EFF would not work with any party who “brings white domination and control through the back door.”
