Cape Town - Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) leader Julius Malema has called on South Africans to break the law and destroy all apartheid-era symbols, including the statue of former prime minister Louis Botha outside Parliament.

According to the Sunday Independent, Malema has also challenged people to destroy the Cecil John Rhodes statue at the University of Cape Town.

Malema meanwhile reportedly says he is not worried about being arrested for inciting public violence because he does not respect a “rotten government”.
