- Julius Malema is in trouble again over something he said
- This time he made comments about Indians that left a bitter taste in the mouths of many South Africans
- South African Minority Rights Equality Movement wants to take Malema on for his latest remarks against Indians
Samrem (South African Minority Rights Equality Movement) plans to open a case against the leader of the Economic Freedom Fighters.
Chairperson of Samrem, Daleep Lutchman, stated that there will be a meeting to decide exactly what charges they will be pressing.
Lutchman feels that by classifying people by their race Malema goes back to the apartheid system.
There are already 2 cases pending against Malema opened by Samrem. Both these cases relate to his comments from a year ago.
Malema made negative comments about Indians that underpay their workers and "are worse than Afrikaners".
According to an earlier report by Briefly.co.za, Malema alleged that Indians had it better during apartheid than black people.
He said this during a Youth Day speech at Matlosana Stadium in Klerksdorp in the North West.
He further went on to accuse the majority of Indians of being racist.
Malema then attacked Indian journalists who came to Ismail Momoniat's defense after the EFF's Floyd Shivambu questioned Momoniat's presence as a "non-African" at a committee meeting in June.
Malema has a history of speaking out against Indians, in 2017 Malema spoke at the EFF's fourth anniversary in Durban. He lamented the fact that big tenders were being given to Indians, particularly in Durban and KZN.
We are saying share with our [Black] people. We also want to say, here in KZN, stop ill-treating our people. They are ill-treating our people worse than the Boer Afrikaners treated our people. This is not anti-Indian, it’s the truth. They must treat our people properly.
