The EFF leader Julius Malema has once more tongue lashed President Zuma calling him umakhandakhanda (big head).
Malema says he (Zuma) ought to work at a taxi rank if not for the help of the ruling African National Congress (ANC)
Malema, who was addressing a crowd of about 5000 residents of Ackerville‚ Emalahleni who went on a peaceful protest singing “Zuma must fall‚ Zuma must fall”.
The crowd consisted of old women and men who sat on chairs in front of the opposition party’s truck‚ while behind them young people dressed in red chanted “Juju‚ Juju‚ Juju!” as they pumped their fists in the air.
“This is not a rally‚ it is just a community meeting. So imagine what it would be like if it was a rally‚” Malema says as the crowd shouts in agreement.
Malema was in Witbank on Wednesday as his Mpumalanga campaign trail‚ ahead of the August 3 local government elections‚ wound down. He went on to tell the people that they would never be free if they are unable to flush out toilets and land ownership. He also said change will never take place in the country as long as Zuma still leads.
“The country had done well under former presidents Nelson Mandela‚ Thabo Mbeki and Kgalema… until this crook came umakhandakhanda (big head) came‚”
Pointing at the increased unemployment and dwindling economic state of the country, Malema says all these happened under the Zuma-led administration.
“Zuma thinks he is special‚ (he is a) graduate of grade two …there is nothing special about Zuma. We did him a favour (by letting him lead the country)‚” Malema says as he points at how people still lived in shacks.
Adding to the insults, EFF’s Malema says Zuma would have been a queue marshall at the local taxi rank had it not been for the “favour” from the people of the country and for the ANC.
Malema’s attack on the president is becoming a norm for him. In his recent attack, he called the president a “Blesser” (“blesser” is a man uses his wealth to shower women with gifts in return for sex), and a president who buys cars worth R9m for his four wives while the people who voted him in continue to live in shacks.
Malema however, recounted what the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) has achieved for the people including fighting for Zuma to pay back the monies he used on his Nkandla homestead.
“We are going to fight with him until he resigns‚” he said as he urged the residents to continue in the fight until justice is served.
