Economic Freedom Fighters leader Julius Malema has once again been revealed as a flip-flopper as a result of comments he made concerning business minister Pravin Gordhan during Jacob Zuma's presidency and his current position.
Malema vowed, when Jacob Zuma was president, that if he had to pick between Pravin Gordhan and Zuma, he would chose Gordhan without hesitation. In addition, he referred to the former president and his allies as "criminals" who posed a threat to South Africa's economy and stability.
The same Julius Malema is now asking for the resignation of Pravin Gordhan due to his inability to turn Eskom around.
Pravin Gordhan was fired by former president Jacob Zuma during his administration, and many think that Zuma did so for a valid reason, namely Pravin's incompetence.
Those who believed he was being treated unfairly, including Julius Malema, are now demanding his resignation as Eskom continues to cut the power.
Some stated, "We will never forget Julius Malema, our country is in shambles because of him, and that is a reality."
Zuma's supporters further asserted that Julius Malema and his party members were utilised as a weapon against the former president and as a diversion from his ambitions to implement Radical Economic Transformation.
They stated that Malema's legacy would not be complete unless he was identified as one of the supporters of white monopoly capital in the struggle against Zuma; yet, he is now speaking out against capitalists and their oppressive inclinations.
"Malema and his EFF were utilised by white monopoly capital to derail Zuma's objectives for Radical Economic Transformation; this is an indisputable reality.
Even after Zuma implored them to unite as blacks in opposition to land expropriation, they opposed nuclear power and the expulsion of Pravin "an ANC comrade claimed.
Zuma urged his followers to unite all black people in the country during a meeting this weekend with his supporters and sympathisers.
