Under the leadership of the EFF, illegal electricity connections will not be punished. This is the statement Malema made to 1000’s of followers at a rally in Alexandria.
Malema went further and encouraged illegal connections:
“That is not illegal connection. That is leadership. You are providing leadership where there is no leadership. An EFF government will never call you izinyokanyoka for connecting electricity. If we find you, we are going to fix it properly for you instead. If ordinary people can do it, it means government can perfect it,”
Malema also defended those that occupy land illegally.
“I am told that there are people here in Alex who call themselves property owners and who demolish your houses. The EFF says we must expropriate land without compensation and give it to the people of Alexandra to build their own houses. There will be no fool who says you cannot build your shack or how here,”
