At a press conference at Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) headquarters in Braamfontein on Thursday afternoon, party leader Julius Malema said Finance Minister Tito Mboweni’s economic policies amount to a “direct declaration of war against the working class and black people in general”.

Malema was referring to Mboweni’s recently released economic recovery blueprint. The EFF leader said he was not surprised that the government’s policy direction in the document was “dictated from [an] imperialist Euro-American academy like Harvard University”.

While it is unclear whether Harvard University was indeed involved in the document, Mboweni did hold a discussion colloquium with economists and academics in December 2018, which included participants from Harvard and sought to discuss ways to grow SA’s economy.
