'We’re prepared to die for land expropriation without compensation'
EFF leader Julius Malema has accused President Cyril Ramaphosa and the Democratic Alliance (DA) of colluding with AfriForum to sabotage plans to expropriate land without compensation.
The party has claimed that it's aware of white extremists who are opposed to the policy and are training as snipers in Pretoria to kill them.
Malema was addressing the media on Thursday at the party's headquarters in Braamfontein.
“They will kill us for that. There’s a group of white right-wingers who are being trained by Jews in Pretoria to be snipers…”
This comes after US President Donald Trump's controversial tweet.
“The DA does the same thing. And the DA’s position is the same as AfriForum’s position. Cyril Ramaphosa’s group in the ANC has got a similar position as AfriForum.”
#EFF Malema says there's a group trained to be snipe in a farm in Pretoria. Death is the price we will pay and poverty will come. It's a war and we must be prepared. Death is the price we are willing to pay, we are not shaken BD— EWN Reporter (@ewnreporter) August 23, 2018
#EFF Malema: Our suspicion is that Cyril's group, the DA are involved in this thing. They don't believe in land expropriation of without compensation. They are lobbying for international support against this. At least Afriforum is doing it in the open Bd— EWN Reporter (@ewnreporter) August 23, 2018
