At a press briefing on Thursday afternoon, Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) leader Julius Malema accused the “capitalist establishment, including international media,” of trying to “force” President Cyril Ramaphosa on the people of South Africa.

“If it were according to the capitalist and establishment media wishes, Cyril Ramaphosa would have achieved 80% ANC victory, and yet in reality the ANC support reduced in all provinces under his leadership,” Malema said.
