According to the Fighters’ lord, blacks are illiterates, unemployed, plagued by drug abuse and, are dying because of the evils of White South Africans. The Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) leader was speaking at his party’s memorial service in honor the late famous Cuba leader, Fidel Castro when he made the assertion. He declared whites the devil troubling black South Africans saying they have destroyed the lives of black people in the country.
Malema charged whites to return what they stole from blacks and save the country an unnecessary unrest. The EFF leader was quoted to have said: “One day we’re going to have an outburst. We’re unemployed because of them. We’re dying of diseases because of them. We’re illiterate because of them. We’ve surrendered to drugs because of you. You owe us a lot.”
The EFF commander-in-chief thereafter, praised late Fidel Castro for the role he played in liberating Mzansi saying: “If it was not because of Fidel Castro, most African countries were not going to be liberated. It was the people of Cuba who deliberately came to help African people to liberate themselves.”
Also, the party rejected the Commonwealth saying it will not form part of Parliament’s delegation to the 62nd Commonwealth Parliamentary Conference for 2016 in London. To the EFF, the Commonwealth is an association convened by the British Monarchy.
The party argued that the British Monarchy, instead of taking full responsibility for its crimes of genocide, colonization and anti-black racism, has continued to express influence over its former colonies through the Commonwealth.
“The British monarchy must not enjoy the world’s recognition taken the pain it has caused across the world through the brutal crime of colonization. (It) should be ashamed of itself… “The wealth and benefits of colonialism are still found in Britain and many free nations attend the commonwealth programs to continue to salute and normalize the evil monarchy and its queen who even has the audacity to give keynote addresses,” stated the EFF.
