“If not wanting Zuma is racist‚ then we are proud racists‚” EFF leader Julius Malema told an tens of thousands of marchers at the Union Buildings.
President Jacob Zuma steps down as president.
EFF leader Julius Malema started his speech at the Union Buildings in Pretoria by praising leaders of the opposition for organising a peaceful march.
“We have united for the purpose of taking back our beautiful country‚ Malema said‚ adding that the office of the President belonged to the people and not to the ANC or Zuma.
The insults for Zuma flowed freely during his address.
“We don’t have a memorandum‚ because the person who occupies this office here can’t read‚” Malema said‚ pointing to the Union Buildings.
“The man hates books‚ and therefore a memorandum won’t be read by this clown. We don’t want to waste paper and ink‚” he said. He emphasised that the Pretoria march was not a once-off event.
“This is a rolling mass action. We are coming to Free State‚ Eastern Cape‚ Western Cape‚ North West and Limpopo. We are going to all big cities in the country and KZN‚” Malema said.
