During the EFF apparent ground forces rally, Malema made a statement and it was later posted on their Twitter.
#VoteEFF Malema: As black people, we kill Nigerians accusing them of selling drugs and we kill Zimbabweans accusing them of stealing our Jobs. Yet, the white man committed a genocide against us, took land, raped our mothers…— Economic Freedom Fighters (@EFFSouthAfrica) January 12, 2020
#VoteEFF Malema:…killed our child in Coligny for picking up a sunflower, they kill our people saying that have mistaken them for baboons. You’re even afraid to collapse the statues of white people. Why? Because you hate yourself.— Economic Freedom Fighters (@EFFSouthAfrica) January 12, 2020
Malema also stated on Twitter: “We want to be like Gadaffi”
#VoteEFF Malema: We want to double the social grants of the elderly and the social grants of children. We want to be like Gaddafi; who would gift newly wedded couples with land. We also want to gift you with land.— Economic Freedom Fighters (@EFFSouthAfrica) January 12, 2020
Julius Malema is already facing many charges for early 2020. One of the first cases coming up against Malema is the assault on a security guard.
In October 2019, Newslite SA reported that Afriforum was given the green light to prosecute Malema.
One case concerns the firing of a firearm in 2018 at an EFF rally in the Eastern Cape and the other case of the assault of a police colonel in April 2018 at the Winnie Madikizela-Mandela funeral.
