“There are a lot of RET forces in those municipalities because there is no longer ANC there. It is RET and then there is CR [President Cyril Ramaphosa].
“Voting is a secret so we will talk to RET to vote with us to upset the situation.”
Malema attacked the IFP for refusing to vote for an EFF candidate to chair the municipal public accounts committee in the City of Johannesburg.
According to Malema, the IFP was not playing fair after the EFF voted for them and put them in power in many municipalities in KwaZulu-Natal.
It was for this reason, he said, that the IFP had no choice but to vote with the EFF in Johannesburg to secure a long-lasting collaboration between the parties.
Malema said: “The IFP cannot tell us they are being defied by their region in Johannesburg. They will have to fire those people and put in people who carry the party mandate.
“We are not interested in their internal affairs but we have given the IFP a lot and we will still give them a lot.”
