Advocate Roelof du Plessis cross-examines Julius Malema

» Julius Malema was a “child soldier” for the ANC.

» It is typical of African countries to use children to fight wars.

» Malema’s plans to nationalise mines and land equates to communism.

» Malema’s comment that his gun was replaced by political power is similar to Vladimir Lenin’s statements on the continuation of the revolution by “other means”.

» White farming families are frightened that the ANC will drive them off their farms in trucks.

» He “guarantees” that Malema’s attempts to amend the Constitution to change the land redistribution policy will be unconstitutional.

» People living on farms get scared when they hear Malema sing Dubul’ ibhunu.

» The UN is sending a mission to South Africa to investigate genocide against farmers.

» White farmers have a 700% higher chance of being murdered than anyone else.

» Malema is used by the ANC to put issues on the table

Julius Malema

» To say “kill” doesn’t mean anyone should be physically hurt.

» Aged 13, he was ready to shoot “the enemy” with a 9mm pistol he carried to Chris Hani’s funeral.

» The enemy is the apartheid system the ANC “defeated” and people who still perpetuate apartheid.

» Anyone who still supports apartheid does not belong in South Africa.

» Sections of the media still perpetuate apartheid.

» Some judges are still influenced by “dark forces” and supportive of apartheid policies.

» If you are not militant you run the risk of being irrelevant.

» “Shoot the boer” means shooting a system, not an individual.

» Everything in life is political, even dating a girl.

» The struggle for economic and social freedom continues.

» I don’t believe in surveys.

» The mines and land should be nationalised without compensation.

» The Constitution should be amended to allow the land to be shared equally.

» Zimbabwe is a democratic state.
