“The EFF is not a populist movement. We are not a movement that looks for easy solutions,” Malema said on Sunday.

He was addressing over two hours, which was streamed across the EFF’s social media platforms and website.

The address was to mark the party’s seventh birthday (7 years anniversary).

EFF leader said South Africa has the fifth-highest amount of Covid-19 infections.

Claiming all these happens because of a puppet president who always dances to the tune of the capitalist establishment.

Malema said the Department of Health’s response has been less than satisfactory.

They shouldn’t build temporary hospitals in reference to field hospitals  but hospitals that will last forever.

Malema said science must not change for political considerations, and opined that the scientists advising the government are in the pockets of politicians and possibly white monopoly capitalists.
