JOHANNESBURG- Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) leader Juluis Malema spoke to eNCA’s Cathy Mohlahlana and said that white genocide is a lie, a fake notion and added that white people in the country are the safest.
During an interview at the network show ‘As it Happens’, the opposition party leader said they are simply addressing issues people are often uncomfortable to discuss.
He said, “Civil war, which will happen in this country, will not be as a result of Malema saying one or two things, it will be out of the frustration our people are confronted with.
“There is a serious problem of underdevelopment… of not sharing the resources of this country and the whites becoming richer and the blacks poorer, we ought to confront it, be honest about it, we must not be scared and the generations after us will thank us.
“White people in South Africa are the safest people. There are no people in South Africa that are more safe than white people. They are untouchable,” said Malema.
“If a white person dies, in the farm or anywhere in the suburbs, it becomes news and we forget that thousands of black people die every day and do not receive the similar attention because of privilege.
“There is no white person who is threatened, they know it is a discourse, they know it is robbers at times, it can be scary at times, that’s what democracy is about.
“I say that under my leadership, I don’t see the EFF engaged in any form of racial or white genocide, it will never happen,”
In part Two of the interview he slammed the president Cyril Ramaphosa has failed to lead the country and said his party the EFF is not threaten by him.
Malema was questioned if EFF had become irrelevant during Ramaphosa presidency he said, ” How does the EFF become irrelevant because the EFF is on the lips of everybody since Ramaphosa came in?”
He added, “Ramaphosa is no threat to the EFF. He is the most irrelevant person. His biggest problem is Zuma, so we are smooth sailing because Zuma is doing the work for us. Ramaphosa is over-exaggerated.
“I like Ramaphosa because he wants to remain Mr Clean, and the only way to be Mr Clean is becoming indecisive. In the absence of not taking any decision, we come in and provide leadership.”
