- EFF MP Floyd Shivambu has once again been condemning colonisation and how it left black people disadvantaged
- Shivambu believes that South Africa is the most racist country in the world and wants to change this
- The EFF member also spoke about the political party's plans to overthrow the ANC government
Floyd Shivambu is saying that the state of racism in the country is embarrassing and claims that South Africa is the most racist country in the world. Speaking at the EFF's Freedom Day rally, Shivambu did not hold back and gave his thoughts about what's happening in SA.
Shivambu says that there's nothing for black South Africans to celebrate on Freedom Day because they remain "landless". He also shed light on the EFF's plans to overthrow the current government.
“South Africa continues to be the most racist nation in the world. White people spend more money on their cats and dogs than they do on their domestic workers."
"That is what we still experiencing today in this so-called freedom," said Shivambu.
The EFF member also spoke about decolonisation and how important it is for black South Africans to pick themselves back up from the injustices of the past. He believes that colonisation taught black people to hate themselves.
"If you hate any of your African brothers then you hate yourself. And that is what we need to fight and change. Such a system to remain with us forever, and we should refuse that," he said.
In other EFF news, Briefly News reported that Julius Malema demanded an apology for ‘previous racial injustices’. 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 that white South Africans 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"
