Economic Freedom Fighter (EFF) CIC Julius Malema - whether he is speaking at a mass rally to red-beret wearing supporters, or simply chilling with his friends and chatting to fans on social media - always seems to find the words to cause people to catch feelings.
The latest "utterances" while not the type to upset as much as some he has made recently, still attracted a fair amount of attention, and quite a bit of laughter.
As Briefly.co.za reported in the past. Malema has at times caused tempers to flare due to comments he makes. Most recently his comment about cutting the “throat of whiteness” - although he did say he didn’t mean that literally - left many triggered.
However, this time he and fellow EFF leadership member, Dr Mbuyiseni Ndlozi, better known as “the people’s bae” seemed to be having a good time, even giggling as they warned people not to die over the Easter weekend. had fellow EFF leader, giggling while the two shared tips for a happy and safe Easter weekend.
Among the messages the pair put across were some sound bits of advice about drinking and driving. They suggested people not get drunk and drive so that they would live to see their land returned.
“We don’t want you to die, the revolution needs you guys,” Malema said. “Don’t die before you get your land, you are going to be a landless ghost.”
Other sage advice included staying safe long weekend, not speeding. Beng patient with each other and always carry lots of condoms.
Malema posted a “Happy Easter” message sitting with Ndlozi and both looked like they were in a pretty light-hearted mood. The video was shared on Twitter and has since been reshared and retweeted thousands of times.
Malema also asked his followers to “pray for peace and reconciliation, justice and the return of the land without any drop of blood”.
Malema said that every prayer must be dedicated to land even by “those in the UK”. At this point, Ndlozi was unable to contain himself anymore and ended up giggling about the “landless ghost” chirp again.
While the video was very clearly light hearted, the EFF is not joking about land reform being a priority. Their official statement tweeted on Good Friday called for prayers for "South Africa and its land expropriation without compensation process; that we may truly expropriate land without compensation for equal redistribution without any spill of blood."
The statement, released on the party's website by EFF national spokesperson Ndlozi, also mentions prayers for the emancipation of other nations and people under oppression including the plight of the Palestinians in Israel.
"We join the world in remembrance of the brutal death of Jesus Christ on the cross. We remember him as the messiah of the poor, degenerated, oppressed, widows, orphans and children. In his memory, and that of his death on the cross, we must renew our commitment to build a better world which seeks to change the living conditions of the oppressed."
