Freedom Day wouldn't be the same without a divisive speech by the leader of the Economic Freedom Fighters, Julius Malema.
Malema delivered a passionate speech at a public rally in which he demanded this white South Africans must apologise
He also delivered scathing remarks directed at President Cyril Ramaphosa.
“I don’t see anything black in Ramaphosa. I see everything white about Ramaphosa. His job is to help white people. White people owe us an apology and an explanation on why they oppress our people."
The EFF shared Malema's message on their social media accounts:
"When they say to you that you must celebrate Freedom Day, they mean you must celebrate not having land. #EFFFreedomDay"
The South African reported that the EFF does not believe that Ramaphosa will honour his promise to redistribute the land despite reassurances that the process is still on the cards.
According to News24. Malema called on South Africans to fight for the land to ensure food security and the ability to work it.
During Malema's speech, he said that Freedom Day could only be taken seriously once all people have access to land.
Earlier, Briefly News reported that recent times have seen South African politician Tokyo Sexwale in many headlines as allegations of corruption plague his name. The EFF's Julius Malema recently decided to share his opinion on the matter.
In a tweet online, Malema expresses just how much love he has for Sexwale and that he really wants to support him, but he has certain reservations about doing so. His tweet was accompanied by a clip of a woman expressing how tired she was of corruption in South Africa.
In similar news, Norma Mngoima, the former Finance Minister Malusi Gigaba's estranged wife, is trending on social media after she laid down the cold hard truth, or at least her version of the truth, at the state capture inquiry.
Norma told the inquiry all that she knew about her husband’s dealings with the Guptas. She made it known that the Guptas influenced the appointments at state-owned enterprises, despite Malusi denying this in his testimony.
Although the Guptas played a part in appointments, Norma claims that Malusi and Ajay did not always agree and had heated discussions often.
