Thus saith the Commander-in-Chief of the Fighters (EFF) – “De Klerk must, every evening when he sleeps, pray that Malema must never be a president of South Africa. If I become president I will lock up De Klerk for crimes committed against black people for a very long time.”
Julius Sello Malema was addressing supporters outside the Bloemfontein Magistrate’s Court today when he made the remark.
To Malema, the former president FW de Klerk is a most suitable individual to languish behind bars. He ought to be suffering in jail instead of word-lashing him for demanding the taking over of land without compensation.
“Who is De Klerk to lecture me? Why must I listen to a murderer?” Inquired the EFF lord. He added that he would never listen to De Klerk saying the former leader never paid for the crimes against black people under his leadership.
Malema also denounced reconciliation asserting that he’ll be coming for Afrikaners who according to him, the ANC allowed to enjoy privileges.
“I am not for reconciliation, I am for justice. There is no reconciliation without justice and justice is the return of land. When we take over power Afrikaner males, you will know your place, just pray to your ancestors [DF] Malan, pray to [Hendrik] Verwoed. Just ask them for the EFF not to come into power.
“We are not scared of Afrikaners. This is not your land, you must know your place, you are visitors here…If you continue to misbehave, feeding our people to lions, putting them in coffins while they are still alive, then you are applying for something else,” charged Malema.
The EFF leader is facing charges related to contravening the 1956 Riotous Assemblies Act following his call on supporters to occupy unoccupied land. Nonetheless, he has utilized every opportunity to reaffirm his stance on the issue.
According to him, there can be no justice without land. Blacks must take over land without compensation, he maintained.
