The EFF contested its first-ever local government elections in 2016. The party managed to bring in 8% of the votes nationally. Now, just days before the 2021 elections, Julius Malema has decided to weigh in on a topic he’s spoken about several times before: White people.


The EFF held its closing rally in Katlehong in Ekurhuleni on Friday. With party supporters coming out in their numbers and the ANC failing to deal with an energy crisis, the red berets are feeling very optimistic.

But while Malema has received plenty of criticism for stoking racial tensions, he says people are getting him all wrong. And that people are misinterpreting his love for black people, as hatred for other races. 

“My declaration for my undying love for Black people must never be confused with hatred for white people. White people stop pretending. You hear me properly. I speak in your language. Don’t be scared of equality because we are not anti-white but seek equality.”

EFF leader Julius Malema


While Malema’s latest comments are unlikely to bring in many white voters to the party before Monday, in 2018 he described white people as being “like trees”.

“Mama wanted the land and she said she did not want the madness of driving white people over the sea. We say that all the time in the EFF, but it does not suit the narrative of those that own the media.

“We want white people, there is no problem with white people. White people have naturalised here. They are like our trees and mountains; like our nature.”

With that all cleared up, and a promise to deliver land and jobs now, do you think the EFF will get above 15% in the coming week? Source: The South African
