- Julius Malema has once again made blanket statements about racial groups
- This time, he said that white people favour each other over other groups of people
- He explained that this was why the EFF would no longer be forming coalitions with the DA
Julius Malema has said that "white people will always favour white people".
The EFF leader made the comments on Tuesday during an interview with Lesedi FM.
He added that he thought white people would always see black people as inferior.
Malema made the remarks while speaking about his party's relationship with the DA. He said that the EFF had never been in a coalition government, despite entering into coalitions in Tshwane, Nelson Mandela Bay and Johannesburg with the DA, among other parties.
Rather, Malema said that in these instances the EFF was merely voting for the party it thought would provide the best service delivery, according to The Citizen.
However, Malema said that the EFF would no longer be partnering with the DA, as white people perpetually see black people as inferior, in Malema's view.
He said it was unlikely that the EFF would form a coalition government with the DA, but also said the party would not vote for the ANC either, Briefly.co.za has gathered.
During the interview, Malema also rubbished suggestions that he may be returning to the ANC. He said the EFF was his political home now.
Malema's comments about white people are the EFF leader's latest in several controversial remarks about race. Recently he has faced charges of hate speech, but the South African Human Rights Commission ruled in Malema's favour.
