EFF Commissar and Member of Parliament Mbuyiseni Ndlozi made a rather shocking claim on Twitter. Ndlozi said that EFF leader, Julius Malema, is the only leader in South Africa with a "license to criticize & call out black incompetence".
Ndlozi claims the reason why Juju is allowed to do so, is due to the fact that he is the only leader fighting for black people. His tweet has caused a lot of frustration in his replies section as Saffas just don't understand why he would tweet that. He concluded his tweet with:
"Thus, we know that his criticism of blacks comes front that SAME place as his commitment to our upliftment: Black Love!"
Take a look at Ndlozi's tweet below:
Here are some of the top responses to Ndlozi's tweet:
"Look Ndlozi, not all black people are outsourcing their thinking responsibilities as you think. Publicly judging black lawyers for a few cases you lost was totally irrational and Anti-transformational. You have publicly denied them chances to get clients."
@Thandek03191969 quote tweeted with:
"Not you defending a careless blanket generalization of our black legal professionals. Not you perpetuating toxic stereotypes that inhibit black people from growing within said profession. #deepsigh."
"We keep saying that EFF is Malema cult. The followers are just like Bushiri followers. Only people who can't think rely on others to think for them."
Briefly.co.za recently reported on Malema after he addressed the use of white lawyers by the EFF. The politician told a crowd of EFF supporters outside the Randburg Magistrate's Court on Thursday, 29 October that his party was losing cases with black lawyers.
Malema and Ndlozi appeared at the same court earlier for charges of assault. They are accused of assaulting Colonel Johannes Venter at the funeral of Winnie Madikizela-Mandela in 2018. Venter allegedly refused to allow Malema’s vehicle into the cemetery.
The case has been postponed until March 2021. Malema told the party's supporters that Ian Levitt Attorneys are attorneys of record. He praised them for representing them "so well". Advocate Laurence Hodes represents Malema and Ndlozi in the case.
