Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) leader Julius Malema addressed his party’s students command at its third national students assembly on Saturday, where he told a gathering of EFF students that the decision to “hold hands” with people from outside the party – particularly white people and ANC supporters – during the Fees Must Fall movement was an example of opportunism.

“There is nothing wrong with grabbing opportunities, there is everything wrong with opportunism,” he said. “For instance, lets take the struggle for no fee increase, a terrible mistake you committed, you held hands with the children of the oppressors and with people in ANC t-shirts and you say it’s because you needed numbers,” he continued.

This attempt to swell numbers through joining hands with the supposed enemy was actually because those students “needed validation,” Malema added.
