While the EFF commander in chief, Julius Malema continues his fight for Black South Africans to take back what he claimed originally belong to them – their ancestral lands, the party has lashed out on ‘white racists’ over coffin video recently released on social media.
Two men are expected to appear in the Middleburg Magistrate’s Court on Wednesday following an alleged beating of a man and forcing him into a coffin, according to report from the Economic Freedom Fighters.
“I heard the EFF will be in court but I still have to confirm the case,” says Police spokesperson Brigadier Leonard Hlathi who could not confirm the Coffin Video matter.
EFF spokesperson Mbuyiseni Ndlozi claims the incident where the white racists were seen forcing a man into a coffin took place at JM De Beer Boerdery next to Komati Power Station.
In the 20-second Coffin Video, one man, speaking in Afrikaans, is seen forcing Mlotshwa into a coffin and threatening to pour petrol on him.
“These white racists then took a video and put it up on social media for amusement after humiliating [Victor] Mlotshwa,” Ndlozi said.
“This humiliation can be based on nothing else but his blackness, which means it is in actual fact a humiliation of black people as a whole.”
Meanwhile, EFF leader, Malema said he wants to know why black South Africans keep suffering in their own land and the ruling Africn National Congress has refused to do a thing about it.
The party commander, who maintained that he had no grudges against the Whites, said he has problems in understanding why the blacks are still suffering.
“Why are we not finding waiters and waitresses that are white? Why are we not finding farm workers that are white? Security guards that are white? Domestic workers that are white?”
He claimed blacks in South Africa have no houses or access to jobs. “What have we done? To whom?” he asked, adding that white people were working and enjoying the beauty South Africa has to offer at the expense of their black counterparts.
