Cyril is not black He is non-white – Malema

EFF leader Julius Malema was addressing a crowd of students at the University of KwaZulu-Natal’s Westville campus on Tuesday July 26, 2017. He said the had to force their way in to the campus after having been granted permission and then having it withdrawn.

“The management of this campus gave us permission to be here, but last night they withdrew it and they thought we would not come. When I entered the gate [today] the security refused to open. I opened by force, because we have a right to be here,” he said, after apologising for starting an hour late.

“Democracy means the right to defend those who do not agree with you, so they can do so without fear. But you come to a campus and you are told there is no stage for leftist politics by reactionary management that seeks to appease the incumbents,” Julius Malema said.

“You are poor. You are the child of a domestic worker or a farm worker. Accept your reality and join the struggle.”

Julius Malema also took an opportunity to direct some criticism at the deputy president of South Africa and the ANC, Cyril Ramaphosa “Cyril is not black. He is non-white. Everything he has been doing in his entire life has been to please white people.”

Meanwhile Normah Zondo, UKZN’s acting executive director for corporate relations, said, “No political party is permitted to host a rally of any kind or nature at any of the University’s campuses. Permission was then withdrawn and students were informed both verbally and via email on the 24 July 2017.”

“The EFF truck forced its way onto the quad and played loud music from 11:30 onwards, disrupting academic activity in the surrounding lecture theatres and laboratories. The university is primarily an educational institution and it is regrettable that this important fact was ignored by the EFF today,” Normah Zondo said.
