Speaking at a June 16 40th anniversary celebration at the Risko Fakude stadium in EMbalenhle‚ Secunda on Thursday‚ Malema said his party was not fighting against white people.
“We are not fighting against them‚ we are not fighting for them either. We are fighting for black people. Anyone who fights for white people is fighting for white people privilege.”
Malema said his party was fighting for poor people to have equal economic freedom rights with their white counterparts.
The EFF leader added that the party was fighting for the Afrikaans language to fall.
“When you enter a bank‚ the door is written in two languages English and Afrikaans. Why? Where is isizulu‚ where is seSotho. We want it to be equal‚ when you write in Afrikaans we want you to write in all the languages‚” Malema said.
The rally was attended by thousands of supporters who were lining up since the morning to enter the stadium.
Malema also added that community members must not burn buildings during protests.
“Don’t burn the clinics because as once the ANC government is out of office‚ we are going to need that clinic so that we can extend working hours and make it serve you‚” Malema said.
Malema was joined by other EFF leaders including Dali Mpofu‚ Mbuyiseni Ndlozi and Floyd Shivhambu.
