EFF leader Julius Malema challenged Nelson Mandela's grandson Mandla Mandela to a debate about the late statesman legacy.
JOHANNESBURG – Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) urged the ‘ANC to do the right thing and recall the President”.
Mogoeng said Jacob Zuma had failed to uphold and respect the South African constitution by not complying with the Public Protector&39;s office.
Addressing the media, Malema said the party welcomes the judgment and advised Zuma to step down with immediate effect.
“The President has been ordered to pay back the money as requested by the EFF. We are happy that a process has been outlined on how the money is going to be paid and the matter will be closed.
“The Constitutional Court found that the President violated the constitution. He failed to uphold, defend and protect the constitution. That on its own is reason enough for the President to step down. As the EFF we call for the President to step down with immediate effect,” said Malema.
Malema again set his sights on the Gupta family, accusing them of stealing money from government. He said the Guptas and Zuma recently took out R6 billion from South Africa and dumped it in Dubai.
“Zuma was recently in the UAE in Dubai. That was not an official visit, it was a personal visit. Zuma took money to the UAE. That’s where they are dumping money. The Gupta’s have taken R6 billion to Dubai.
“Zuma goes to Dubai on some unexplained trip. Why did Zuma go to Dubai? Because when Zuma travels he doesn’t get searched by customs. He left with bags of money to be dumped in Dubai. That’s where they are dumping our money with the Guptas,” said Malema.
