'We are cutting the throat of whiteness': South Africa politician vows to target white mayor as he praises plan to hand land to black people and vows: 'Angry white people can go to hell'

Julius Malema leads South Africa's Economic Freedom Fighters opposition party
Revealed he wanted to remove Nelson Mandela Bay mayor because he is white
He told a packed arena: 'We don't hate white people, we just love black people'
The politician also praised plans to transfer land from white to black owners

A firebrand South African politician has vowed to unseat a white mayor after praising plans to hand land to black people.

Julius Malema, 37, who leads the country's Economic Freedom Fighters opposition party, said he wanted to 'remove' Nelson Mandela Bay mayor Athol Trollip specifically because he 'is a white man'.

He told a packed arena in Johannesburg that 'we are starting with this whiteness. We are cutting the throat of whiteness'.

During the speech Malema said he wanted to unseat the mayor - a member of the Democratic Alliance - and accused the political group of being a racist party that promotes the interests of whites.

'All white people who are voting DA, who are angry with what we are going to do in (Port Elizabeth)... all of you can go to hell, we don't care about you. We don't care about white feelings,' he said to loud applause and cheering. 'We don't hate white people, we just love black people.'

Malema launched his campaign to be elected president in 2019 by aggressively distancing his party from its one-time coalition partner.

The EFF has propped up the administration of Port Elizabeth's mayor since 2016 elections.

Athol Trollip is a member of the DA which has governed Port Elizabeth as well as Johannesburg and Pretoria with the support of Malema's EFF.

But since the resignation last month of president Jacob Zuma, long the target of Malema's ire, the EFF has switched its attentions to the main opposition DA.

Malema has sought to rebuild ties with the ruling African National Congress (ANC) since President Cyril Ramaphosa succeeded Zuma last month.

'Ramaphosa must do the right thing. We don't care about him being a billionaire, we want him to do the right thing,' said Malema.

Malema founded the EFF in 2013 when he was expelled from the ANC along with a number of allies, and the party now has the third largest number of MPs in the National Assembly.

In his speech, Malema welcomed the ANC's recent resolution to seek to expedite the process of redistributing land to 'rightful owners' that is widely understood to mean transferring land owned by whites to economically disadvantaged blacks.

'We want to give land to our people, it is going to happen, it will happen in our lifetime, whether they like it or not. The land will be returned,' he said.

'We are not going to listen to any Britain, we are not going to listen to European Parliament, we are not going to listen to UN - we are going to listen to the people of South Africa,' Malema added.

He was referring to a letter sent Tuesday by right-wing British UKIP MEP Janice Atkinson to Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson calling on London to 'step in' over the issue of land redistribution in South Africa.

Malema also announced a voter registration drive for EFF supporters.

'All fighters in all branches must be registered to vote. If you are not registered, then you are a criminal.'

According to the Telegraph he has said he has learned 'to live in conditions of capitalism while fighting and defeating it'.

In 2014 he was criticized for wearing Louis Vuitton shoes and in 2011 he received backlash after flying business class to the three-day nuptials of millionaire property developer David Mabilu.

He is also known to wear flashy watches such as Breitling and Rolex

In 2010 he came under fire for drinking Moët et Chandon Rosé champagne and eating cake at his birthday celebrations, while his supporters, including a large number of elderly people got just water and fruit.

He said: 'We don't want them to stay in shacks, that's why we can't stay in shacks.

'How are you going to inspire them when you are also going to stay in a shack?'

Now, there's a can of worms/hot potato.

On the face of it, sounds great. Why shouldn't the black South Africans, after years of subjugation, get their land back?

Not that simple, sadly.

Can you imagine saying that about immigrants here.

What he said is racist to the white people.

I agree it was their land, same as America was Indians land, in fact many countries were taken from indigenous people.

“We don't hate white people, we just love black people”

Wonder if anyone thought that was a tad racist?
