The Economic Freedom Fighters organized a memorial service for the late former President Robert Mugabe at Orlando East Communal Hall, Sports and Recreation on Thursday. The memorial service was attended by designated guests including EFF deputy president Floyd Shivambu, Dali Mpofu and a family relative of the late Robert Mugabe.
EFF supporters filled the community hall as the Chief Commander Julius Malema addressed the people and paid his last respects to Mugabe. “Today we are here to pay our respects to our grandfather Robert Mugabe. We call upon all Africans to liberate their minds so we can unite and see each other as one. Robert Mugabe started his politics in South Africa as he studied amongst our hero struggles such as Nelson Mandela, Julius Nyerere and Robert Sobukwe, to name a few, at Fort Hare University”.
Malema told his supporters that South Africans must treat other fellow Africans as equals and not fight amongst each other. He spoke against the violence that is taking place in Gauteng and how the black man must liberate his mind in order to own land and have economic freedom.
He concluded that the Zimbabwean government must allow the Mugabe family to pay their last respects in peace and with dignity. Before ending his speech he mentioned that Minister of Finance Pravin Gordhan is working against him and is one of many politicians who shouldn’t be trusted by the people.
