Cape Town - Economic Freedom Fighters leader Julius Malema has lashed out at billionaire businessman Johann Rupert and blames him for his troubles with the taxman.

According to the Sunday Times, Malema told a group of supporters at a rally in Khayelitsha, Cape Town, that “Rupert and friends” controlled the ANC and the Democratic Alliance.

He reportedly said Rupert had ordered the ANC to deal with him while he was head of the ANC Youth League and that the businessman controlled the South African Revenue Services.

The EFF reportedly requested to meet Rupert in February but was turned down. Rupert’s office is said to have told Malema that he did not fund political parties.
