Johannesburg - He was a better farmer than embattled NCOP speaker Thandi Modise, Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) leader Julius Malema has said adding that farming was “very simple”.

“From [the] Marikana massacre of our people to [the] pig’s massacre on Thandi Modise’s farm. She should be ashamed,” Malema said in an exclusive interview with City Press in Mthatha, where he was holding a meeting with Eastern Cape party structures on Saturday. 
He said the ANC government could not be trusted to take care of South Africans.

“If people can’t take care of their own animals, how can they take care of the country? That is a demonstration of failure. The ANC must be ashamed to have a leader of that stature who does not care about the wellbeing of her own animals.”

He also said the National Council of Provinces speaker’s conduct during the State of the Nation debate demonstrated that she had “no capacity”.

“She has lost respect from many of us who used to see her as a caring woman and mother,” Malema said.

The EFF leader's farm was auctioned in order to settle a tax bill of R16m.

Malema said what happened on Modise’s farm had been extreme and that the former North West premier had gone into farming because she was not sure of her political future.

“She was not sure what was going to happen to her if she was no longer a premier and thought farming was a shortcut.

The reason why pigs ended up eating each other is because Thandi never had an interest in farming.
