Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) leader Julius Malema, has urged eligible young voters who are considering not to vote in the upcoming municipal elections because they are jobless, to rethink their decision.
Malema addressed supporters at an election rally in Mahikeng in the North West.
He says young people must vote until job opportunities becomes available.
“The youth of Mafikeng must lead from the front. Vote until you get a job, if the EFF does not give you a job, change your vote. Give [your vote] to another one until you get a party that will give you a job. You should never stop voting. The only guarantee that will give you a job is to vote,” adds Malema.

Malema has called on his party volunteers to work hard in order for the EFF to win the November elections.
He encouraged the party’s volunteers to even mobilise black Democratic Alliance (DA) supporters.
Malema asserts that the DA hates black people.
“You have to work 24 hours. You have to speak to every voter on the voters roll including the DA black voters. You must tell them that the DA hates black people. It will never liberate black people. There is only one party that loves everybody … but loves more black people and that party is the EFF,” he explains.
Earlier, Malema said the African National Congress (ANC) should be ashamed to call Mahikeng the provincial capital city of the North West.
He criticised the ANC government for failing to maintain infrastructure built by the administration under the former Bophuthatswana leader, Kgosi Lucas Mangope.
The EFF election campaign in the North West, will be concluded on Sunday in the JB Marks municipality in Potchefstroom.
