Watch| EFF Calls For National Shutdown Over Fuel Prices, Eskom And Phala Phala Farm
To reclaim the nation from what it describes as an incompetent and aimless government, the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) have demanded an unprecedented national shutdown.
Speaking to the media earlier on Thursday, Julius Malema, the leader of the EFF, claimed that the ANC was no different from a criminal organization and added that South Africans could no longer remain passive while the unemployment rate, crime, and the cost of living continue to rise.

Malema said that the party will seek the end of load shedding, a return to 2018 fuel prices, and the immediate detention of Ramaphosa in connection with the Phala Phala farm scandal, along with other organizations.
“The EFF will also form part of all the progressive formations and the organisations in South Africa to plan and engage a national shutdown, which will seek to remove Cyril Ramaphosa from office. The nature of the character of our national shutdown will not be a candle holding and white flags type of a shutdown. It will be a shutdown that must communicate to the sitting government that, enough is enough.”
Malema’s proposals for a shutdown come as South Africa continues to suffer social and economic setbacks as a result of last year’s July riots.
On the fourth day of her impeachment trial in Parliament, the Public Protector Busisiwe Mkhwebane has the support of the EFF.

Johann van Loggernberg, a whistleblower for Sars, testified at the hearings that began this week. This relates to the rogue unit report from Mkhwebane.
Malema said President Cyril Ramaphosa wants to suspend Mkhwebane because of her probe into the Phala Phala farm saga.
She had sent the president questions regarding the alleged theft. “We as the EFF stand firmly behind the fearless public protector. We know that the reason why Cyril Ramaphosa rise to suspend her is because of wanting to avoid the 31 questions she asked regarding the Phala Phala farm and so many laws that were violated.”
The EFF calls on all the people of South Africa to join on the NATIONAL SHUT DOWN to demand our country back from an incompetent, directionless, and a criminal syndicate that enjoys the protection of white monopoly capital and its media. #EFFPresser pic.twitter.com/FzGTmi4nUr
