‘We are cutting the throat of whiteness’
From News 24 in South Africa:
EFF (Economic Freedom Fighters) leader Julius Malema has explained that his party is specifically aiming to remove Nelson Mandela Bay mayor Athol Trollip because he is white.
“We have taken a decision that we are going to remove the mayor of PE [Port Elizabeth],” he told a crowd gathered for the launch of the party’s election registration campaign at the Standard Bank arena in Johannesburg on Sunday.
“Why? Why not [mayor of DA-led Johannesburg Herman] Mashaba, why not Solly [Msimanga – mayor of DA-led Tshwane]?
“Because the mayor of DA in PE is a white man. So, these people, when you want to hit them hard – go after a white man. They feel a terrible pain, because you have touched a white man.”
He said this did not mean that the EFF would not target Mashaba and Msimanga.
“They will be touched – don’t worry. But we are starting with this whiteness. We are cutting the throat of whiteness.
