Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) leader Julius Malema on Thursday told the Gupta family‚ known supporters of President Jacob Zuma‚ to leave South Africa
The country cannot be colonized by a family‚ he told a news briefing in Johannesburg.
“We demand that the Guptas must leave the country with immediate effect. We’re tired of talking about the Guptas.”
The outspoken opposition leader issued a public threat:
“We’ll do to the Guptas what we did to the colonisers. We’ll engage them directly.
“Our brothers and sisters working for the Guptas‚ this is not about you. Move out of the way. We’re going for the enemy.
“We can’t guarantee the safety of those working for the Guptas.”
Referring to the family as “Zuptas”‚ he reiterated they must leave South Africa.
