Julius Malema just will not be any stranger to controversy, and curiously every public holiday we gain in South Africa, the political firebrand starts one other fundamental row. This time, he’s made a pretty sweeping assertion at a public rally – he wants white South Africans to apologise to black SA electorate for ‘old racial injustices’.
Julius Malema ‘wants an apology from white people’
The foundation of ‘reparations’ is nothing unusual for Malema or the Red Berets, but his feedback advance at a barely aloof 2nd for the country. The fate of land expropriation without compensation smooth hangs in the balance. Despite the truth that the redistribution of land is smooth scheduled to toddle ahead, the EFF suspect that President Ramaphosa could doubtless no longer attend his promise.
On issues of land, colonisation, and beforehand oppressive regimes, Malema wants a paunchy-on apology from South Africa’s white community – an provide that is now doubtless to fuel an gargantuan debate in this country:
“I don’t see the rest black in Ramaphosa. I see the entire thing white about Ramaphosa. His job is to help white people. White people owe us an apology and an clarification on why they oppress our people. We don’t owe white people the rest, including an clarification of why we need the land. We’re no longer on a honeymoon with white people.” | Julius Malema
EFF give Freedom Day the thumbs down
Rather dramatically, Malema moreover declared that South Africa has ‘reached the level of no freedom’, some 27 years into the democratic period. The 40-one year-extinct is adamant that there might be ‘nothing to celebrate’ on this particular public holiday.
“How will we keep up a correspondence adore beggars who don’t know what they are right here for in our take note country? We didn’t retract somebody’s land. Nor did we toddle to one other country. We’re in our take note country – we’re asking for what rightfully belongs to us. On this land we have nothing as black electorate, yet we’re requested to celebrate our take note landlessness on Freedom Day”.
MALEMA: When they train to you that you just must celebrate Freedom Day, they mean you must celebrate no longer having LAND. #EFFFreedomDay
