The Economic Freedom Fighters leader made a very strong remark during his keynote address at the Rand Merchant Bank Macro Forum in Sandton on Thursday.
He said the ruling ANC has no plan to get South Africa out of the current economic recession.
“What is the ANC resolution from the policy conference about resolving the recession and taking us out of junk status? [President Jacob] Zuma never addressed that,” said Malema.
The CIC said the ANC was not focused on issues affecting the South African economy and dismissed the governing party’s recently concluded six-day policy conference as “useless“.
He accused the ANC of adopting a “waiting in a waiting room for growth” economic strategy. Under former president Thabo Mbeki’s tenure the country experienced economic growth of about 5%‚ but wealth was not distributed.
“We are tired of waiting. Our people are getting tired of waiting‚” Malema warned.
