Whites took our land - Julius Malema

ANCYL leader Julius Malema told an election rally in Kimberley over the weekend that all white people should be regarded as criminals for stealing land from black people, according to Die Burger. "We have to take the land without payment, because the whites took our land without paying and transformed them into game farms. The system of willing seller, willing buyer has failed.

"We all agree they stole the land. They are criminals, they should be treated like that," the newspaper reported. He also spoke about the need for economic empowerment, picking the Oppenheimer family as a target for his vitriol. "The money is in the hands of only 10 percent of the population who are handling about 90 percent of the wealth in the country.

"The money is in the hands of the Oppenheimers. The Oppenheimers took our minerals. Galeshewe hasn’t shared in the bounty of the diamond mines.” President Zuma, who was at the rally, did not comment on Malema's speech. However, ANC deputy president Kgalema Motlanthe, who was at a rally in the East Rand, re-asserted the party's non-racial policy. Suggesting that Malema's logic was flawed, the newspaper quoted Motlanthe as saying: "It can't be correct to generalise like that. It is not scientific or healing."Sapa

Also funny to see what was in africa before the so called whites came. Yes nothing. Everything here was build by the so called helps with the man power of black people. Not people like him beacuse he is worth nothing. He can not build anything. He is out to destroy this country if the current goverment allows him to.
