More expected from the EFF
JULIUS Malema is right. It is more than likely that there are some Indian South Africans who don’t pay their workers the minimum wage. But this is also true of African, coloured and white South Africans.
Malema is also right when he says there are Indian bosses who do not treat their workers properly. But you would also find bosses from other race groups who behave in the same way. The point is that you can’t generalise. We expect more from the Economic Freedom Fighters than populist rhetoric based on race.
This is, after all, a party that wants to improve the economic circumstances of the working class. In this group, the majority are Africans, but it also includes Indians, coloureds and even whites.
As a result, their focus should be on class rather than race.
But the EFF is still young. One can only hope that with age will come greater maturity.
