Cape Town - EFF leader Julius Malema has blamed the Democratic Alliance (DA) and president Cyril Ramaphosa for US President Donald Trump’s tweet on South Africa’s land reform.
In a tweet which sparked social media outrage, Trump said he had asked Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to “closely study the South Africa land and farm seizures” and the killing of farmers in South Africa.
Malema speaking during a media briefing accused the DA and Ramaphosa’s "Group" (faction) of being responsible for the utterances by Trump.
“We'll not engage government about Trump, this is a government of cowards. Our suspicion is that the DA is involved in this thing. Our suspicion is that Cyril’s group is involved in this thing.
“They do not believe in the expropriation of land without compensation, including Cyril himself. So they want to use these types of threats to get out of this thing. We must never be fooled here, we're not kids,” said Malema.
