Malema needs a history lesson - CDP

2011-10-29 14:33
Johannesburg - ANC Youth League president Julius Malema has this time attacked more than just the white people in South Africa, the Christian Democratic Party said on Saturday.

"These 'non-black' citizens have been told to leave this country and to return to where, for the most part, their great, great, great grandparents came from," CDP leader Theunis Botha said.

"It is a pity Malema apparently was never taught the true history of the country, as he would then have realised that the original inhabitants of the country were the Koi and San, and that Malema’s ancestors were no less foreigners to this country than those of whites and Indians."

Botha was reacting to statements Malema made during the ANC Youth League's two-day economic freedom march from Johannesburg to Pretoria.

The ANC Youth League on Friday called on government to amend the Constitution to allow land claims without compensation.

"He stated clearly that everyone that lives in South Africa who isn’t black and who owns property has stolen it from the black people and especially from the black youth... Malema has now openly instructed that the Constitution be changed in order to legalise the theft of their property and possessions," said Botha.

Over the two days, ANCYL marchers handed over memorandums to the Chamber of Mines in the Johannesburg CBD, the Johannesburg Stock Exchange in Sandton, and to government at the Union Buildings.

The demands centred on the economy, poverty and high youth unemployment.
