EFF members choose Zulu king over Malema in KwaZulu-Natal
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.
