Malema: Nothing to celebrate on Freedom Day

2014-04-26 19:07
Cape Town - Economic Freedom Fighters leader Julius Malema on Saturday asked supporters to stage a stay-away from 20 years of democracy celebrations.

"You don't have freedom, people of the Western Cape, therefore you have nothing to celebrate," Malema said while addressing an election rally in Mitchells Plain on the eve of the celebrations marking two decades since the first democratic elections.

"For as long as you don't have your dignity back, you have nothing to celebrate."

The former ANC Youth League leader made reference to the fact that many people in the province still had no access to flushing toilets.

The banning of an EFF election advertisement from the SABC was cited as another example of how South Africans were not free to express themselves.

The advert, which asks people to destroy e-tolls physically, was banned by the public broadcaster because it incited people to commit a criminal offence.

"This freedom is not free, therefore... don't go to a Freedom Day rally. Just go door-to-door," he told supporters who were bussed in from across the province.
