Malema: white patriots should join the Struggle

2011-10-05 00:00

MANKWENG — Speaking at the University of Limpopo last night, Julius Malema said the ANC Youth League’s struggle is not against white people and that he will personally defend any white person being attacked in front of him.

“White people are our fellow South Africans and they share our struggle.”

He called on “white patriots” to join the struggle, noting that “white people own 90% of the land in this country”.

Malema said the struggle was never against whites, but until everyone shares in the prosperity of South Africa, the struggle will continue.

“White people do not have to worry. But they must worry about poverty,” he said.

Malema said there are many poor whites in places like Pretoria. “Poverty knows no colour, poverty does not discriminate,” he said.
