McKenzie: Malema running away from the truth

2014-04-25 14:49
Cape Town - Patriotic Alliance leader Gayton McKenzie says Julius Malema’s response to his open letter shows that he’s just running away from the truth.

Speaking to News24, McKenzie said Malema, the leader of the Economic Freedom Fighters, can’t accuse the PA leader of lying and that’s why he responded the way he did.

In the letter, McKenzie described him as the "biggest thief" he had ever met.

"You get two kinds of politicians in this country - the ones who come from prison and those who must still go to prison. You belong to the latter," McKenzie wrote.

Malema responded by saying: "I have nothing to say... I don't think the matter deserves my attention."

McKenzie told News24 that Malema reacted this way because he knows that what was said in the letter was the truth.

McKenzie also called Malema the biggest threat South Africa has ever faced.
