Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) leader Julius Malema was heard saying "I will kill you" to a member of the Pan African Parliament. The members are sitting in Midrand today, Thursday, 27 May.
Malema and the aforementioned member of the PAP got into a heated debate where Malema threatened to kill him. The member of PAP was seated in front of Juju and turned around due to the argument.
According to reports, members of the PAP refused to leave the Midrand premises. Although a member had tested positive for Covid-19, the members still demanded that elections of office bearers be held.
EWN reported that Malema and the ANC's Pemmy Majodina were sitting at the Parliament and both stated that the sitting should be adjourned to follow protocols. The media publication shared the video of Malema in a heated debate with a member of the PAP.
Briefly News took to the comments section under the tweet to see what some South Africans had to say. Read a few of the replies below:
"I say this all the time. But it doesn't mean I will assassinate you. It just another way of saying 'I will beat you and you can't even try to fight back'."
"And he says he wants to unite Africa???"
Earlier, Briefly News reported that 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."
