EFF leader Julius Malema is calling for the postponement of of all elections amid a spike in COVID-19 infections.

Malema is briefing the media on various issues pertaining to the government’s handling of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The local government elections are set to take place sometime later this year, with Malema saying they should resume in 2024.

He says this move would help save millions of people from the Coronavirus.

Commenting on the reopening of schools, Malema says government should delay this, saying thousands of learners will be at risk of contracting COVID-19 if classes resume on the 27th on January.

Last year the pandemic caused a major disruption to the academic year, where learners were forced to stay at home for over four months with no education.

He says civil societies, teacher unions and parents must come together to revolt against the resumption of classes this month, saying they should be delayed until the peak begins to curve.

Malema has condemned attacks aimed at healthcare workers. According to recent reports, COVID-19 has exacerbated violence against healthcare workers, including incidents of harassment.

Malema says it’s everyone’s civil duty to protect medical personnel, therefore such instances should be reported to the relevant authorities.
