Johannesburg – Members of the ANC have been turned into zombies and are being controlled by rich families, EFF leader Julius Malema said on Thursday.“The ANC government has been zombiefied. These are zombies. That zombie in Isibaya, Mgijimi, they are all Mgijimis,” Malema told reporters in Johannesburg.“They tell them what to do. The Oppenheimers and the Ruperts tell them what to do.” Malema said the process did not only start now. He said it went as far back as former President Nelson Mandela.“They started zombiefying with Mandela. The Menell family gave Mandela a house when he left Soweto. We must not be told to worship Mandela like he was a Jesus Christ. We need to take count of where did we go wrong and this thing started with Mandela," Malema said."He left Soweto and then went to stay in the Menell house. He was zombified and that’s how zombies operate. You get taken out of your house into the backyard of your handler. Then they moved to zombiefy the rest of them. Cyril is the worst. Trevor Manuel has been zombified by the Ruperts,” said Malema.He said the Guptas were the new zombie handlers. “Our leaders have been converted into Zombies by these families,” he said.
