EFF mem­bers choose Zulu king over Malema in KwaZulu-Na­tal

Swazi Observer - - NEWS -

KWAZULU-NA­TAL - A group of EFF mem­bers have pub­licly called for their leader to apol­o­gise to Zulu King Good­will Zwelithini, but the Zu­l­u­land Ob­server re­ports that Julius Malema con­tin­ues to refuse to do so.

The mem­bers have ad­vised the EFF pres­i­dent not to set foot in the prov­ince again un­til he apol­o­gises to Good­will Zwelithini. Ear­lier this month, IFP leader Inkosi Man­go­suthu Buthelezi lam­basted Malema for hav­ing said the state should take own­er­ship of land un­der the In­gonyama Trust. Buthelezi was ad­dress­ing thou­sands of his party sup­port­ers at the Makhathini Flat in Jozini dur­ing an IFP rally last week Mon­dayl. Buthelezi said Malema sat next to him in par­lia­ment but had never raised the is­sue of the In­gonyama Trust land with him. “I want to warn you to be care­ful of par­ties that cam­paign on the ba­sis of emo­tions,” Buthelezi said. In March, Malema had at­tacked King Zwelithini for al­legedly fan­ning blackon-black vi­o­lence with his state­ments about the ex­pro­pri­a­tion of land with­out com­pen­sa­tion.
