- This follows the spat between Juju and news anchor, Karima Brown, and the IEC have now received numerous complaints linked to the EFF
Julius Malema is well-known for his abrasive and somewhat militant approach to politics.
The leader of the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) may have landed himself in hot water with the Electoral Commission of South Africa (IEC) over recent comments made.
Following the spat between Juju and news anchor, Karima Brown, calls have been made for the EFF to be barred from the upcoming elections.
Initially, those opposing the EFF requested that action be taken against the party for Malema’s treatment of journalists.
A defiant Malema fired up supporters during a recent address in Ekurhuleni, Gauteng.
Juju said, "They want to remove us from the ballot paper because they can see that we are going to attain the land. Two things are going to happen. Death or Economic Freedom"
The South African reported that some have regarded this to be a political threat.
The IEC is obligated to look into any actions which contravene the electoral code.
Briefly.co.za has not been able to verify if Malema’s latest comments have been reported to the IEC as yet.
