SACP supports ANC, condemns Julius Malema`s propagation of war in the strongest possible terms, calls on the police ?to act swiftly in terms of the rule of law
26 April 2016
In a widely televised exchange in Talk to Al Jazeera last weekend, asked how far he was willing to go in his war against our democratically elected government leadership, referring to himself and his accomplices Julius Malema said `we will remove this government through the barrel of a gun`.
Julius Malema`s propagation of unconstitutional change of our democratically elected government through war is highly treasonous. It will ruin our beautiful country in bloodshed, and must be nipped in the bud.
The SACP is fully behind the African National Congress and the step it has taken yesterday, 25 April to lay charges with the police in Johannesburg against Julius Malema. The police must act swiftly and defend the rule of democratic law in our country.
Let us recall that Julius Malema, the `Economic Freedom Fighters` leader, is a plunderpreneur of Limpopo. According to the findings made by the Public Protector in a report titled `On the Point of Tenders`, Julius Malema was involved and benefited from tender corruption and fraud in Limpopo Province through his various shareholdings and Ratanang Family Trust.
During this period of Julius Malema`s state capture in Limpopo, the provincial government was pushed to the brink of bankruptcy, amidst looting of public funds by corrupt and fraudulent means through tenders. Public servants in certain branches of the service were plunged in a situation where there was no money to pay them according to contractual obligations.
Thanks to national intervention under the leadership of government by President Jacob Zuma, several Limpopo Provincial government departments were brought under national administration to stop the collapse.? The situation has since been hugely improved.
