'Blacks must not vote DA' - Malema

Pretoria – Blacks must not vote for the DA so the country does not fall into the hands of whites, EFF leader Julius Malema said on Thursday.

"Please don't vote for DA. The pain you are currently feeling is very little compared to what you will endure if the whites are in charge," Malema told residents of Kanana in Hammanskraal.

"In the eyes of the whites, we are bobbejaans [baboons]."

Malema said DA leader Mmusi Maimane joined the party solely for financial reasons. Maimane was merely a front and others were in control of the party, he claimed.

"Mmusi Maimane is not a leader of the DA. He is just after money," he said.

Malema spent his day campaigning in townships in Tshwane. He told voters to think about their futures ahead of the August 3 local government elections.
