Julius Malema delivered an impassioned speech tackling the issue of Xenophobia and claims it is a symptom of self-hate.
EFF (Economic Freedom Fighters) leader, Julius Malema, made a plea to South Africans to change their attitude towards neighbouring countries and foreign black people.
Malema urged the nation to stop criticising the government’s attempts at uplifting other countries on the African continent.
He says emphatically, “Africa’s problems are our problems.”
Juju also heavily criticised xenophobic attacks and labelled them a symptom of self-hate.
He goes on to say, “You hate what you look like and therefore you attack a fellow African.”
Malema also adds that the way we treat black foreigners is how black South Africans will be treated when going abroad to visit other countries.
The footage of the speech was shared by twitter user, Political House Archive (@finley_198), who labelled it as “gospel.”
Briefly.co.za gathered that many tweeps admired the message.
However, Twitter had its fair share of sceptics as well.
