JULIUS MALEMA | EFF is the true custodian of the Freedom CharterThe Freedom Charter was a thorn in the side of the apartheid regime, and fundamentally undermined the racist attempt to dehumanise African people. EFF have become custodians of illegal migration to SA not the freedom charter, they really delusional coz they claiming to be what they not while denying who they really are. 🤡 Julius Malema is a caricature of himself. Gucci wrapped in workmen's overalls. Never has a man so embodied the money-driven fake Marxist. The hypocritical WMC wearing narcissist. His sheep are so blind to this it's astounding

'Under the EFF there will never be a shack,' says MalemaEFF leader Julius Malema said the party's interpretation of the Freedom Charter was radical and that the EFF was the only party driven by seeing the promises of the charter fulfilled.

Parliamentary Protection Services forcibly evicted the members who had disrupted proceedings during the Presidency budget vote earlier this month. Parliament said they were removed because of gross disturbances in the house through persistent points of orders, disorderliness and defiance of the Speaker's rulings and authority. While the EFF submitted a complaint to the Speaker, Parliamentary Protection Services officials also lodged complaints that they were treated violently by party members. It shocked many, with speculation rife that he was contemplating joining the EFF ,or at least that the radical economic transformation (RET) faction would cooperate with the party in future. The officials said the MPs resisted and hindered them from carrying out the Speaker's instruction to remove disruptive members from the chamber. They also allege they were threatened and intimidated. In the face of such logical and rational demands by our people, the apartheid police in attendance themselves, constituted the gathering of the people, and could not deny the truth of what our people were crafting.

The newly appointed independent investigator Advocate Elizabeth Baloyi-Mere's responsibility will be to assess all complaints and allegations before reporting her findings and recommendations to the Speaker.. She'll be required to complete the investigation within 14 working days and then submit a written report within five working days. .
