Malema: ‘We Have Not Called for the Killing of White People . . . At Least for Now’

Huffington Post, June 12, 2018

Julius Malema says he has not called for the murder of white people, “at least for now.”

In an interview with TRT World, published on Monday, Malema said he could not guarantee what would happen in the future, and warned that a revolution would happen if things continued as they are now.

“I’m saying to you, we’ve not called for the killing of white people, at least for now. I can’t guarantee the future.”

Asked by the presenter if he understood that to some this might sound like a “genocidal call”, Malema responded, “Cry babies, cry babies!”


“If things are going the way they are, there will be a revolution in this country. I can tell you now. There will be an unled revolution in this country, and an unled revolution is the highest form of anarchy,” Malema said.


According to Business Day, he said: “{snip} What we did as the EFF is to occupy the unoccupied land, we do it peacefully there is no problem … we are passing time with empty land.”

Outside the Bloemfontein magistrates’ court a few days earlier, where he had appeared on hate speech charges, Malema said white people would not be “driven into the sea”.
