Malema, the EFF leader, was labelled a black racist by Mbeki. He advised white South Africans not to worry about the land issue.

EFF spokesperson Mbuyiseni Ndlozi has responded to Mbeki’s remarks.

“He’s dancing to the tune of AfriForum in all characterisation. Simply because we want land to be redistributed, we’re labelled racist. Moeletsi Mbeki has been the most dishonest in that regard.”
