An interview with Julius Malema has emerged showing the EFF leader discussing the inequality in the country. In the three-year-old CNBCAfrica footage, Malema talks about how the contrast between the rich and the poor will cause protests if not addressed, predicting the events currently unfolding in Alexandra today.
He spoke about specifically about the inequalities that exist between the township of Alexandra and the sprawling city of Sandton. His prediction of anarchy seems to have come true as South Africa faces protest action in Alexandra.
"If nothing is done about the inequality in South Africa, we are going to have an unled revolution."
Briefly.co.za previously reported that Alexandra residents took to the streets to protest service delivery, barricading numerous roads. The riled community said that they feel abandoned by the state, claiming that they have been forgotten. A rumoured invasion of Sandton has been reported for today.
