Defiant and wide-mouthed opposition party leader, Julius Malema has taken a swipe at the ruling party, the African National Congress (ANC). As usual, the obstinate leader spanked the ANC, accusing them of losing touch and consciousness with the poor masses.
Malema Enlightens The Masses
Speaking to residents of Jabulani in Soweto on Tuesday evening, he said the ANC only knows how to live big, forgetting the poor masses that pushed them to power. He said, “they get into positions of power, they don’t deliver to you because they think when they eat, that food translates to you somehow.
“They sleep in beautiful hotels and they say they sleep on behalf of the masses. When we say people are complaining they say people are happy. That is why they came with a theme ‘A good story to tell’. Conscience has left them,” he said.
Malema did not also spare the National Assembly, according to him, parliament is just a group with “colonial views”. He indirectly criticized Parliament leaders for introducing and sponsoring parliamentary dress code for MPs. We all know that the EFF surprised everyone in parliament by choosing to go for red overalls as its party’s dress code and that their dress code has not gone down well with some opposition leaders.
“Parliament is preserved for a particular class of people. They wear ties and suits. If you don’t dress like them you don’t qualify… they continue with an inherited system of colonialism. We must repay Soweto”, he thundered.
He also enlightened Sowetans on why the EFF chose red overalls. He said the party decided to wear red overalls in order to challenge colonial views. Malema therefore urged the people to go for their rights, which the ANC trampled upon since 22 years.
“They have given you a medal and that medal is prepaid water and electricity. What an insult to the heroic people of Soweto. You need to say it’s enough. From heroes of the struggle, to entertainers of tourists, this Soweto is supposed to be world class. You fought against the most dangerous government and we must repay you,” he thundered.
Last Saturday, Malema asserted that the reason why the ANC couldn’t fill the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium in Port Elizabeth was because the party is dead. The opposition leader made this known while addressing thousands of party members in Mamelodi during the Solomon Mahlangu Memorial Rally.
“The ANC is history, Zuma is history, and the ANC was buried with Nelson Mandela. That was the end of the ANC. This is the future. We told you and we were not lying. Zuma is hyperventilating. If he can’t fill a stadium, it means it is over for the ANC. If you ever doubted that, bye bye,” he said to loud cheers and chants.
He didn’t mince words when he painted President Zuma black, saying “The emperor is naked, he doesn’t have people. He is walking in the stadium alone. Zuma thought he would get 100 000 people in Port Elizabeth, but they are not there.
He will even go and check in the rubbish bin, thinking they are inside. Zupta, wherever he is, he is doing below average things. I was watching proceedings where Zuma is. The stadium couldn’t be filled. If you thought Zuma was going to survive, then you’re left with Zuma alone,” he punched harder.
