SOUTH AFRICA: Firebrand opposition Economic Freedom Fighter (EFF) leader Julius Malema has again reiterated his call for Zimbabwe President Robert Mugabe to step down. In one breathe he both extolled the Leader for “his contribution towards African revolution” and called for Zimbabweans to “remove him and reclaim their country.”

 Despite his call to action Malema is not saying anything new or anything he has not said before. Earlier in the year the EFF leader called on the Zimbabwean president to step down and allow young leaders to lead the country. He even went on to call “comrades in the Zanu-PF” cowards for failing to remove the 93 year old, who has been in power since 1980, first as an Executive Prime Minister and then as Executive President from 1987.

I like #PresidentMugabe for his contribution towards african revolution but his overstay is destroying his legacy. A good leader should have produced 2nd & 3rd layer leadership to continue the good fight against imperialism. Zimbabweans should remove him & reclaim their country.

“Zimbabwe’s situation is bad. President Mugabe can’t even control a spade. That’s how old he is. He’s no longer capable of discharging his responsibilities. We don’t hate the man. They can respond and insult us.

“They are a group of cowards, those comrades in Zanu-PF. To be scared to say to an old man like President Mugabe, ‘Please, with due respect, let go!’

“President Mugabe must let go! The legacy of the land question … we will carry it. We are following in his footsteps. We are proud of the actions he has taken. But his overstay is not doing justice on the African revolution project. He is destroying his own legacy. It’s bad,” Malema previously said.

 To this President Mugabe soundly responded that he intends to stand for re-election in 2018, as Zimbabweans still want him to run for elections, and he will do so until his party decides otherwise. agencies
