South African politician Julius Malema has sparked outrage following the approval of a National Action Plan against racism, saying he doesn’t want the white population killed – he just wants them to serve the black population.
“I don’t want blacks to work for whites. I want you to work for yourselves and white people will work for you. That will be true freedom,” said Malema, who leads the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF), the country’s third largest political party.
He has twice been convicted of hate speech and inciting violence against whites, and founded the EFF after being expelled from the African National Congress in 2012.
Accusing Malema of creating “this sort of clash between races in South Africa in order to gain petty political points,” political analyst Josh Notelovitz condemned the EFF leader’s “negative intentions toward white people.”
