Briefly.co.za reported on EFF leader Julius Malema’s stance on South Africa having no borders and his views have caused quite a stir amongst our readers.
Briefly.co.za recently reported that Julius Malema reiterated that he wants to get rid of South Africa’s borders.
The charismatic EFF leader feels the borders were imposed by white people and its removal would be a step towards decolonisation.
Juju also feels that tightening the immigration policy wouldn’t solve the country’s high unemployment rate.
Malema often polarises opinion with his controversial views and this was no different.
Briefly.co.za shared the article via our Facebook page and the post has attracted a whopping 721 comments.
Based on the feedback from readers, Juju’s stance may not have done much to win over new supporters to the EFF.
If anything, many EFF supporters claimed to be jumping ship after the revelation.
Everest Ivy said, “Oh now back to square one, have to figure out which party is getting my vote. Uyihlazo nje wena Julius we were starting to trust you but it's good that you told us before the vote. Taking my vote out.”
Mthembeni Dlamini commented, “DA is a solution don't be racist think about the future of this country. Drugs, human trafficking, high rate of unemployment because of foreigners without permits. Only one part talking about to get rid of this nonsense is DA. NP Apartheid will never come back, when Mr Mandela released from prison. NP president and Mr Mandela signed that this country will be ruled by vote.”
Mduduzi Blessing Khumalo said, “Malema is not good enough to be a president of South Africa instead he will make things worse for our country.”
Sivuyile Rulashe added, “He must open his house/ home for public first, maybe after that he is going to understand the importance of borders.”
Simon Madimetja Kekana said, “Just think we are crying people smuggling drugs to the country so if no borders what would happen even myself I will burn my EFF overalls and back to ANC.”
Lufuno Mavukhesh Malwela said, “I support you Mr malemaa but now l think you are crazy.”
Karabo X Ndlovu asked, “Does this guy realise how many votes he just lost?!”
