Return the land of our forefathers – Julius Malema tells white South Africans

Julius Malema, leader of South Africa’s opposition party the Economic Freedom Fighters on Monday further trumpeted his stance on land reform in the country, urging his supporters to occupy white-owned land.

“When we leave here, you see any beautiful piece of land, you like it, occupy it – it belongs to you. It is your land,” he said during his address to his supporters outside the Bloemfontein Magistrates Court, on charges of contravening the Riotous Assemblies Act.

The Act prohibits gatherings in open-air public places which the Minister of Justice may consider a potential threat to public peace.

Malema was charged earlier this year for inciting supporters in Newcastle during the 61st anniversary of the Freedom Charter to occupy lands owned by whites.

Undeterred by a case postponed to June next year, Malema made a similar call.

“We are not talking violence, we are not promoting violence, but I cannot guarantee the future, I’m not a prophet, I’m talking now. We are not carrying any weapons; I will never kill white people, why should I kill them? I will never revenge for what they did. I’m asking politely for the land to be returned,” he said.

Since his rise through the political ranks to leading a political party, Malema has been punting a Zimbabwe-style land grab system.
