Social media users were left confused after a video resurfaced of an interview Julius Malema did a while back, where he said those who fire guns in public should be arrested.
On Thursday a tweep, Lindsay Maasdorp, shared a throwback video of Juju, where he said those who are caught on camera shooting firearms in public should be legally dealt with.
“Listen to Juju! We cant allow guns to be used as toys, as it perpetuates black on black on black violence. malema agrees with @BLF_SouthAfrica; we have opened a case against the settler! #ArrestTheSettler,” the video was captioned.
The video caused a stir on social media and with good reason since the EFF leader himself was recently filmed discharging an assault riffle during his party’s birthday celebrations over the weekend.
Social media user @PercyZuma1 wrote, “Dafuq??? When is he taking any responsibility for his own actions? Lawd what did we do to deserve being alive with this generation?”
As Briefly.co.za reported previously, Juju received backlash after he was captured on video shooting what appears to be an assault rifle while his party and EFF supporters sang struggle songs.
Malema has since defended himself, claiming it was a fake gun with blanks. But, an expert concluded Juju was, in fact, firing live rounds.
