Economic Freedom Fighter leader, Julius Malema, feels that borders are a construct imposed by 'white people'.

Speaking to enthusiastic supporters at the DUT yesterday, Malema explained that having citizens from neighbouring countries was not as bad as it was chalked up to be, with foreigners doing the jobs most would turn down.

Malema's vision of 'decolonisation' was the absence of borders, according to IOL. The EFF leader said that:

“When you are done beating up the foreigners, you will resort to tribalism and then we will be Rwanda. Stop it now, if you don’t we will be left with no country. From xenophobia, tribalism follows. Stop African hate and imperialism.”

Malema had been campaigning in the province and had started his day, as many do, with a trip into the Durban CBD on a Metro train.
