- EFF leader Julius Malema has shown where he stands in terms of uniting the continent of Africa
- Malema recently addressed the Pan African Parliament about unity and the rotation of the PAP's presidency
- South Africans have had various responses to Malema's speech and took to social media to share their thoughts
Economic Freedom Fighters leader Julius Malema believes that unity is key. Malema was speaking to the Pan African Parliament (PAP) on Wednesday, 26 May. The Red Berets leader explained that rotation of the PAP presidency is vital.
Malema stated that it is not about sharing power but rather about uniting Africa as a whole. Juju told the MPs present that if they are not concerned about serving 'imperialists and colonialists' but are concerned about uniting the continent, they will have no problem with the rotation.
"If you are concerned about the unity of this continent and are not serving the interests of imperialists and colonialists; you will never have a difficulty on the application on a principle that will unite Africans."

Briefly News compiled just a few of the responses to the above:
"I'm so proud and in tears of joy for hearing Julius Malema talking powerfully and meaningful about African continent interests at heart. The hope is here. We shall rise Thank you @Julius_S_Malema true African son. Strength to you always."
"Plain truth: @Julius_S_Malem has spoken rationally here. @AU has figures of leaders that are there just for their stomachs. They're undermining the African legitimacy to favour imperialists. Hence poverty keeps galloping. Change is needed now!"
"Can we appoint him as the President of Africa."
Previously, Briefly News reported that Malema said he was 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.
