The EFF says it is in full support of the release of former president Jacob Zuma from prison on medical parole.

EFF Commander In Chief, Julius Malema, says Zuma is an elderly person and being in prison was not a good idea in the first place.

Malema says even though they as the EFF have had their differences with Zuma but it does not mean that they wish him ill.

Addressing media in Gauteng for the party’s voter registration and manifesto launch, Malema says the Constitutional Court should have put Zuma on house arrest.

The EFF says it will not regulate the number of its supporters that will attend the launch of its manifesto.

Malema says it’s time for people to feel rejuvenated and excited about the upcoming local government elections and look forward to voting.

Responding on the failure to disclose party’s funding to the Independent Electoral Commission, he insists that unlike the ANC, DA and Action SA, they did not receive more R100 000.

This is according to a proclamation signed by President Cyril Ramaphosa, on the Commencement of the Political Party Funding Act, 2018 (Act no. 6 of 2018), which regulates public and private funding of political parties.

Malema adds that the party is adamant that government should make the 16th of August a public holiday to commemorate the 34 mine workers that were killed in Marikana in the north west.

He says this day should be either be named Marikana or Workers Day, to honour miners that we massacred in 2012.

He further says President Ramaphosa still needs to account for this and to date, the EFF has donated R1 million to the families that lost their breadwinners on that day.
