Economic Freedom Fighters’ (EFF) leader Julius Malema has slammed the SABC inquiry, saying it’s an exercise in continued factionalism as the African National Congress (ANC) heads to its elective conference.
Parliament began an inquiry in 2016 into the SABC and a report is expected to be released in February.
Malema says it’s the norm every time when the party needs to elect a new leader.
Meanwhile, the EFF has again called on Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe to step down.
The party says if Mugabe continues his stay in office, he will destroy all that he has worked for.
The call comes amid reports that Mugabe’s Zanu-PF party is trying to raise four million rand to celebrate his 93rd birthday in February.
Malema has labelled members of Zanu-PF as cowards who are afraid to tell Mugabe to step down.
“Those comrades in Zanu-PF can insult us anyhow they want, but we are not going to be good friends if we are not going to tell them that, that they are doing is not good for Zimbabwean people.”
He adds” “It’s not good for SADC, it’s not good for the struggle for reclaiming the land in Africa, because those who are leading that struggle, they over stay and destroy.”[Source: SABC]
