EFF PRESSER: DA has failed to understand the pain of losing land

JOHANNESBURG- The Economic Freedom fighter (EFF) has said that those who oppose land expropriation without compensation are perpetuating white privilege,want black people to remain landless and want apartheid era property laws.

Malema says that the party’s decision to pass a no-confidence motion against the Democratic Alliance’s (DA) Nelson Mandela Bay Mayor Athol Trollip is to punish the party for voting against changes to land laws.

EFF wants the land to be taken by South Africans and the state must be a custodian of it.

Malema is hoping that in 2018 it should go down in history for black parties voted for new land policy.

The party has noticed a rise in the right wing movement against land without compensation, he said,

“We’re also aware that there are European Parliament members who are trying to mobilise Europe into an imperialist neo-colonial programme of undermining the sovereignty and democratic rights of South Africa.”

“To them, a land issue is an RDP house. They don’t appreciate the pain, the forceful removal… the sjamboks.”

Malema called on traditional leaders, including King Goodwill Zwelithini, who refuse to surrender land under the Ingonyama Trust to meet and discuss the matter for a way forward.
