Julius Malema told students at the Durban University of Technology yesterday that borders had been imposed by 'colonisers'. This news comes in the wake of recent xenophobic outbreaks in KZN.
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.”
During his address at the university, Malema had called for adequate student accommodation, urging those in attendance to use their vote as the strongest form of protest against the ANC government.
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.
Briefly.co.za reported yesterday that the EFF leader had enjoyed the 'experience-and-a-half' but had denounced the pitiful state of the system. He had pledged that an EFF government would upgrade the system by 2021.
