EFF leader Julius Malema announced that the EFF can end gang wars that have ravaged the Western Cape for years, if members of the EFF can ‘confront gang members’.
He encouraged people in the Western Cape to stand together in the fight against gangs and drugs.
Julius Malema said all this in a speech to over 3000 EFF delegates who were present at the party’s second elective conference held in Johannesburg.
He claimed that the war against gangs and drugs could be won and only EFF members in the Western Cape province can assist in stopping the war that has taken so many lives.
The EFF leader urged his members to start engaging with gang leaders and drug lords to end the menace.
According to Malema there was room for change in the Western Cape and both black and white EFF members must work together in the fight to end gang wars as they had during the fight against apartheid.
He said a lot of blood had been shed in the Western Cape due to gang wars and drug addiction.
“The EFF must be at the forefront fighting gangsterism and crime in the Western Cape. The high rate of murder in that province is like people there are … at war with itself. It is black people being killed by black people. The madness of drugs and gangs must come to end. We must confront drug dealers there and ask them why are they not selling drugs to white people and why are they destroying black communities.”
Julius Malema classified coloured people as black and explained that apartheid separated coloured people from blacks as part of segregation.
