Malema- ‘We are cutting the throat of whiteness’

JOHANNESBURG- Julius Malema, EFF leader has made it clear that his party is seeking a removal of Nelson Mandela Bay mayor Athol Trollip because he is white.

“We have taken a decision that we are going to remove the mayor of PE [Port Elizabeth],” he told a crowd gathered for the launch of the party’s election registration campaign at the Standard Bank arena in Johannesburg on Sunday.

“Why? Why not [mayor of DA-led Johannesburg Herman] Mashaba, why not Solly [Msimanga – mayor of DA-led Tshwane]?

“Because the mayor of DA in PE is a white man. So, these people, when you want to hit them hard – go after a white man. They feel a terrible pain, because you have touched a white man.”

But the EFF will still target Mashaba and Msimanga.

“They will be touched – don’t worry. But we are starting with this whiteness. We are cutting the throat of whiteness.

“Trollip will not be a mayor after the 6th of April, if they give us that date.”

Malema denied reports they will now be supporting the ANC, because the DA has not won outright majority in any metros they gained in the local municipal elections in 2016.

He said, “No one can claim authority and legitimacy and say it [their leadership] is based on the people of these cities. The people rejected us. They said: ‘not one of these parties is worth [more]… than 50%’. So, no one is entitled to any mayorship in these metros.”
