The firebrand leader of the Economic Freedom Fighters Julius Malema has lashed out at the Cyril Ramaphosa, Patrice Motsepe and Pravin Gordhan during a speech at the party's fifth birthday.
He took the opportunity to declare war on his political opponents and accused Gordhan of running the country and Motsepe of state capture in reference to him accompanying Ramaphosa to the United Arab Emirates.
Briefly.co.za learned that Malema called on people to support the EFF and spoke of their plans to canvas neighbourhoods, going from door to door and establishing new branches of the party and their efforts would see the EFF in power in 2019 according to the citizen.co.za.
He threatened that he would take the "buffalo" by the tail in reference to Ramaphosa's nickname. He recently targeted Gordhan and called him “Stalinist”, a “control freak”, and a “gangster”.
Malema accused Ramaphosa of wanting to privatise SOEs such as Eskom, Denel and SAA and he warned that such a move would result in further unemployment.
He said that in 2011 he warned South Africa about the Guptas and he did it again saying that Motsepe's greed will make him an enemy of the EFF.
