SA media out of touch with reality, Malema asserts
An analyst says Malema is trying to shift his ideological stance towards a more socialist movement to try and capture trade unionists' support.
The commander-in-chief of the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF), Julius Malema, was in fine form yesterday when he gave a post-election press briefing at the party’s headquarters in Braamfontein, Johannesburg.
“What the 2019 election results revealed was that mainstream media in South Africa is not in touch with reality and what is happening on the ground.
“The reality is that despite being presented as the best of the best, Ramaphosa performed worse than Jacob Zuma, meaning that to ordinary people, Ramaphosa is no better than Zuma,” said Malema.
He said it would be interesting to see if the EFF was capable of fine-tuning its policies.
“The IEC should build capacity to tally the number of voters on a constant basis,” he said.Read more: The Citizen News
