EFF commander in chief Julius Malema has banned television station ENCA from the party’s events after the station withdrew from covering its conference that is underway at Nasrec.
Malema was quick to say the media should not report as though the television was banned from the station since it is the one that withdrew from the party’s assembly in the first place.
“We welcome the withdrawal of ENCA. You must never go back and report that we banned them. We don’t want to see them in our events if that is their attitude let them bring it on. They are saying that they are withdrawing in solidarity with amaBhungane.
“We announced during the memorial of president Robert Mugabe that amaBhungane are no longer welcome in our events. I have been to the ENCA so many times and they have never asked about amaBhungane. Today I talk about Johan Ruppert they cut the feed.
“They withdrew from the conference meaning they withdrew from covering from EFF,” adding the station was following instructions from Ruppert.
Malema says they are not scared of Ruppert or the Oppenheimers.
Malema told Journalists at a press conference after presenting his political report.
He accused the media of hypocrisy, saying when then ANC spokesman Jackson Mthembu chanted Don’t Buy City Press a few years ago, nobody kicked a fuss.
Mthembu has campaigned against City Press after in defense of former president Jacob Zuma.
Malema called on all leftist organizations to come together as they were under attack from the right. He asked for instance why his party and Numsa were not working together especially since they shared the same ideology.
On President Cyril Ramaphosa, Malema said the president was captured since he has taken money from white monopoly capital who gave him R1 billion to campaign for the ANC presidency.
He said those investors now wanted their returns and they have set their sights on Eskom, SAA and Denzel which with the assistance of Ramaphosa they will buy.
In his political report, Malema warned that the country was in a crisis unde Ramaphosa administration with the economy not growing and unemployment at its highest and the rate of black people was at 40%.
“All these socia-economic problems are happening while the white capitalist establishment is celebrating the election of their puppet as a president.White supremacists are comfortable and happy under the current administration because their puppet is now in office and marginalizing African leadership in all strategic sectors of the economy and government,” he said.
