Last week Malema said 90 percent of his party’s MPs will be replaced.

The party received over 10 percent of the vote in this year's election almost doubling the 6 percent they received in 2014 national election.

The party has also performed exceptionally well in all nine provinces becoming the official opposition in three provinces.
