Democracy in South Africa is not about supreme power being vested in the people; true democracy is not practical when the whites live flamboyant lifestyle; a true working democracy in South Africa is when white homeless ask me for money, says Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) lord, Julius Malema.
Addressing countless supporters at Lebowakgomo on Wednesday, the charismatic leader recounted a conversation he once had with a white homeless man in Polokwane.
“He asked me for a hundred rand; I was very happy. This thing of democracy is really working if white people are asking me for money.
Even if they are hobos, they never forget they are white. They never compromise on their standards, they don’t take anything less than what they think they deserve,” he continued, getting serious.
You have got a house but your house is not anywhere close to where that white hobo is going to sleep. You are not a hobo, but you don’t have water.
A white hobo says to me there where we sleep there is warm water, but you don’t have water. A white hobo will never sleep where there is no hot water, you are sleeping where there is no water at all.”
Lebowakgomo Residents Urged To Vote EFF
Preaching to the excited crowd on the importance of voting the EFF to power, Malema told them they will have more than enough basic services rendered to them once the EFF gets elected because they don’t deserve less, rather they deserve quality.
“Today there is nothing of quality that gets delivered to a black person. People died for us to have quality things but people continue to suffer today even after suffering during apartheid.
What crime did we commit as black people? Black is like a curse. Black should not be a curse, black must be beautiful,” Malema charged his audience.
The charismatic leader reminded his teeming supporters that power is in their hands. He expressed hope that they will do so much in the upcoming election.
“Remember that when you vote. Remember the woman who gives birth in a shack, remember the unemployed sisters, remember the people who were killed at Marikana,” he said.
