Economic Freedom Fighter (EFF) leader Julius Malema has described African National Congress (ANC) president Cyril Ramaphosa as a leader who does not have the interests of the poor people at heart.
Malema says Ramaphosa’s decision to buy buffalos worth millions of rand whilst there are still communities living in abject poverty, without basic services, is unacceptable.
Malema was addressing hundreds of party supporters at Westernburg in Polokwane in Limpopo.
“How do you vote for an immoral president like Cyril Ramaphosa who buys a buffalo for R18 million? Today, they make it a joke. They even call him a buffalo. They are not sensitive to the poor. That which Cyril did in a country where we got extremely poor people in the ANC it’s a joke. They are encouraging him to buy more buffalos for R18 million, for R20 million, while in Venda where he comes from people drink water with animals,” says Malema.
Malema also criticized the Democratic Alliance (DA). He says EFF’s councillors in one of the big metros in the country will soon remove a DA mayor to demonstrate that they are not friends with the Democratic Alliance.
“We must remove one mayor of DA just for control. We must demonstrate to DA that we are not friends with them and we know very well who they represent when they say why, we say we just want to show them we are not friends,” says Malema.
