Malema- the merger is to collapse the ruling party!

Merger envisioned. EFF leader Julius Malema says the merger with ruling party is only to collapse it. 

Malema said the decline in support for the African National Congress (ANC) would continue in the next provincial and national elections‚ which take place in 2019.

“My imagination of 2019 is such that the ANC goes below 50%‚ the EFF increases to 9% or 10%. The ANC needs the EFF‚ the DA needs the EFF.

The first offer I am going to give to the ANC is the merger. The EFF and the ANC must come together and we collapse the name ANC.

We close Luthuli House. We go and open the headquarters of this new party in Soweto‚ where our people are and then we start afresh‚” he told CheckPoint.

Posed to him who is he prepared to work with, Malema said: “I won’t mind working with former president Kgalema Motlanthe. I won’t mind working with Winnie Mandela. The merger will have to produce a unique leadership which will appeal to our people.

“The name ANC is going to remind our people of the painful past. We rather talk about the establishment of a new party completely. We all leave our history there‚ and this is the beginning of a new era.”

The ANC has lost support, first due to the breakaway formation of the Congress of the People in 2008‚ and then came the EFF in 2013.

And according to Malema, he’s only prepared to the merger to collapse the ruling party, after being asked if he’s willing to go rejoin the party that carved his political career.
