White people ‘visitors in our country’, says Malema

White people ‘visitors in our country’, says Malema

Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) leader Julius Malema says while white people are a permanent feature in South Africa – they must act like visitors to a home.

Malema made the remarks outside the Senekal Magistrate’s Court on Friday, where he addressed hundreds of supporters.

The EFF gathered in the small Free State town for the bail application by two men accused of the murder of farm manager Brendin Horner.

“They are South Africans. They live with us, for as long as they appreciate and accept that we are the rightful owners of South Africa and they are visitors in our country and visitors must behave like visitors do.”

The two men, Sekwe Mahlamba and Sekola Matlaletsa, are accused of the brutal murder of 21-year-old farm manager Brendin Horner two weeks ago.

Horner was found hanging on a pole with multiple stab wounds.

However, Malema made it clear that the EFF was not in Senekal to support the accused.

“We are not here for them, we did not come here for these criminals. We are here because white arrogance showed itself in this street. We confronted it toe to toe.”  

The two murder accused, who are both applying for bail, will be back in court on Tuesday.
