Julius Malema, the leader of the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF), said electricity will be deliberately cut off during the counting of votes on the upcoming Election Day, 29 May, to manipulate the electoral outcome. Addressing concerns at an EFF manifesto town hall meeting in Lenasia, south of Johannesburg, Malema articulated fears of electoral theft, reminiscent of past injustices in Gauteng.

“We want to ensure that we stop load shedding; it’s manmade, not god-given,” Malema said, drawing attention to previous occasions where power was conveniently maintained, such as the World Rugby Cup, to highlight the selective nature of load shedding.

He further accused those in power of orchestrating blackouts to facilitate election fraud. “They are trying by all means to keep the lights on until the 29th of May. So, I want to tell you that the electricity is going to go away on the 29th of May, 9:00 when counting starts because they want us to count in darkness so that they can steal the elections the same way they stole elections here in Gauteng,” Malema said.

In his speech, Malema delved into the broader issues of energy management in South Africa, criticising the current government’s handling of coal power stations and advocating for the use of gas to reduce electricity consumption. “Imagine you remove heating and cooking from the grid, you save a lot of electricity,” he expressed, proposing a shift towards more sustainable energy practices.

Highlighting the protracted struggles with completing key power stations like Medupi and Kusile, Malema lamented the infrastructural and operational failures that have plagued these projects, pointing fingers at the ANC government’s inefficiency. “We need to go to China, Russia, India, anywhere where there are progressive forces and not exploiters,” Malema suggested, advocating for a collaborative approach to solving South Africa’s energy crisis by inviting foreign investment in building and operating power stations in South Africa.

During the meeting, Lenasia residents brought forward various issues, ranging from unappointed Indian teachers in local schools to concerns regarding public safety highlighted by a woman whose daughter was tragically murdered due to the prevalent lack of security in the area. Reflecting on Malema’s visit and the issues addressed, one resident expressed her honour and satisfaction with the discussions, emphasizing the importance of recognising and tackling the community’s problems.
