Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) leader Julius Malema took to Twitter late on Sunday night to slam former president Thabo Mbeki’s reaction to SA ambassador to Denmark Zindzi Mandela’s recent contentious tweets on the topic of race and land.
“Mbeki also seems not to be retreating his assault of the Winnie Mandela household,” Malema alleged. “What was wrong with him just saying he has no knowledge of what Zinzi Mandela said? He could not say this because the Winnie Mandela household must always be put to its place: a place of docility,” he continued.
This follows a statement from the EFF, written by the party’s spokesperson, Dr Mbuyiseni Ndlozi, criticising the former president, who according to Ndlozi “failed with flying colours to resolve the land question” while in charge of SA.
