Johannesburg - EFF leader Julius Malema has described as a “waste of time” his support of President Jacob Zuma while he was still a member of the ruling party.

“Yes, under the ANC the years were well spent but supporting Zuma was a waste of time,” Malema said in an online conversation on Monday.

Malema was responding to questions on Facebook and Twitter from South African citizens.

He said he did not support electronic tolling, and wanted it removed.

“We're going to physically remove e-tolls because we don't agree with them,” said Malema on his Twitter account.

E-tolling on Gauteng highways was implemented in December.

Malema answered questions in a straightforward manner without elaborating on them.

He reiterated that his party wanted land to be nationalised.
