Malema visits Phoenix on EFF election campaign

Malema was in Phoenix, KZN on Saturday where he called for peace in the area.

Malema says as the EFF they are calling for peace across the Phoenix area.

“I don’t want tensions, I want peace and those who don’t want peace are enemies of the EFF. Innocent people lost lives here in Phoenix, but that must not be attributed to every Indian you come across because to do that amounts to self-hate. There are a lot of Indians who are against that. It was a barbaric act of people who carried rifles and live ammunition and filmed themselves and took whatever they took and enjoyed shootings, innocent people. So I’m here to say to our people, despite what happened, we belong together and we will overcome all challenges together,” says Malema.
