Julius Malema has responded to the viral video of his supporters bulling a UFS student during a protest. The Economic Freedom Fighter is apparently proud of his followers, despite widespread public disapproval.
Julius Malema has finally responded to the video that the whole of South Africa has been talking about.
Taking to social media platform, Twitter, the Economic Freedom Fighter leader claims he is proud of the behavior of the two woman in the viral littering video.
Briefly.co.za reported earlier that Mzansi had been proud of Eckhard Binding, the UFS student who had persistently picked up the litter that the protesting EFF supporters had been spreading around his campus.
Julius Malema, on the other hand, seems to admire the woman in the video, who have been labelled as 'abusive', 'racist' and 'bullies'.
Even Malema's own supporters had been horrified by the incident, calling on him to condemn the abuse witnessed.
@Brave_Boitu had responded to the same video, only this time retweeted by Malema, she had asked the EFF leader to stop justifying the behavior of his supporters.
Malema had responded to her pleas for a party she can be proud to support by saying:
"We can't, how do you call workers protest to order. There's no formula to peaceful protest, the question should be, was it a peaceful protest, and if the answer is yes, we move on. We can't allow the elite to dictate the form and content of the picket lines."
Mxolisi Yase had responded to Malema's statement with outrage, saying that not only was he leading rascals, but he was condoning the vile behavior. Malema had retorted simply that 'I'm proud'.
This response was pulled apart by social media, with even his own supporters pointing out the ignorance in his words. Malema surely didn't win any votes with this move.
