- Australia's MPs has called on Peter Dutton to bring in 10 000 South African refugees
- However, Julius Malema does not want white people to leave the country
- In fact, he said South Africa would be a ugly place without whites
As Australian MPs press for Peter Dutton to go ahead with his plans to fast-track Visas for South African farmers fearing for their lives, the EFF leader has changed his tune about whites leaving the country.
Juju has been described as racist towards whites, in fact his entire party, who is known for singing 'kill the boer', has been accused of racism and wanting to get rid of white people.
But, according to Juju, who recently said he had 'no sympathy for whiteness, it's the media that painting this picture of him and his party.
“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.
And, then he got poetic.
“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.”
The EFF leader's statements came on Wednesday, during the memorial service they held for Mama Winnie Madikizela-Mandela.
During his speech, Juju assured white people he and his party did not want them gone.
“We would be an ugly nation without white people. We complement one another and that is what makes us a unique nation. Our demand for land is not driving whites to the sea, all we are saying to the white people is: ‘Share the land.'”
And, apparently Australia is worrying about nothing- there's not going to be any white people killed over land.
“No white man has been killed in South Africa because of the land… There is no case in South Africa of a white person being killed because of the land.
“There is no case in South Africa of any white person being forced out of his property, even [by the] the EFF. We are not going to do so by killing any white person. There will never be blood, and that is what Mama taught us.”
