- Mzansi had mixed reactions to his statement and took to the comments section to share their thoughts
Economic Freedom Fighters leader, Julius Malema, says he is shocked that no one from his party has been invited to testify at the Commission of Inquiry into State Capture.
He's argued EFF MP's could share their experiences in attempting to hold the executive accountable through parliamentary processes.
Social media users took to the comments section, sharing their thoughts on the tricky matter. While some users accused the commission of clear biased, others savagely remarked at the insignificance of the EFF.
Read some of the comments below:
Michael van Zyl had a forecast:
"Don't worry Juju your turn is coming as you are going to be implicated ....watch this space."
Margaret Stoltz cheekily remarked:
"Shows you how insignificant the EFF party is."
Solden Shammi Khoza said:
"He is just seeking attention, the commission has asked anybody with information to come forward why Malema would want a special invite?"
Tshepo Lefifi said:
"He's got a point but because it's EFF people will just disagree for the sake of disagreeing."
Meanwhile, Briefly News previously reported that Economic Freedom Fighters leader Julius Malema says they are fighting for a better life for the ordinary black child. Malema says every person in South Africa should have electricity and that having power should not be seen as a luxury.
Speaking at a rally in Ward 9 in Chebeng village, in Limpopo, the outspoken leader said the EFF also wants to give the elderly more money when it comes to pension grants.
“Every person here must have electricity. Not the electricity which fails us when we need it the most. We want electricity because electricity is not a luxury but a necessity.
“We want to give the elderly more money because they are the breadwinners. We must share the wealth of the country, and the only way to do it is to give it to the poor.”
The EFF member of Parliament also said it’s important to have a decent social status and that the land belongs to the black people. He added:
“It is the time for black people to eat. Our elders worked in the kitchens without being paid anything. Now is the turn of a black child.
"You must enjoy the benefits of your own land. This land belongs to our forefathers. We want you to eat, we want to give you the land and we want you to teach your children to work for the land."
The experienced leader also took a dig at those who say he is disrespectful in his approach on matters, saying they are scared of the fact that he wants “all of us to eat”.
“Our people don’t want luxury. They want basic things and they want to be educated. The problem is that we are led by fools who are lazy to think.”
