" He Is Our President, We Don't Want Anyone Else But Him" - Malema's Fan Defends Him

South Africa's Economic Freedom Fighters are one of the most controversial political parties. People are always able to find something they dislike about the EFF and are quick to point it out. However, Malema's EFF members and supporters stand ready to protect him at all times.

On August 17, the opposition parties in Parliament will hold a joint news briefing, according to a statement issued by the EFF. This comes following a series of meetings to discuss measures to hold Ramaphosa accountable for the accusations made against him at the Phala Phala farm. The EFF also stated that Malema will deliver the EFF's keynote address. Some individuals are not surprised that Malema would be presenting the EFF, since they believe that the EFF is a one-man show and that Malema is that man.

However, one member did not take the assertion that the EFF is a one-man show well and defended their leader. According to the individual, Malema is their president, and he must represent them everywhere. The individual stated that Malema was doing precisely what they had voted him to do and that they did not want anyone else in his position. "He serves as president. He needs to represent everywhere. He won our vote. He is executing our instructions. We desire no one else but him".

Since the organization's establishment nine years ago, Malema has led the EFF. People have frequently questioned why Malema does not appoint certain party leaders to leadership positions. It appears that Malema will continue to serve as the party's leader until he becomes the country's leader. However, is this just?

The EFF, in my opinion, could benefit from new leadership. It need a leader who can articulate the EFF's plans and discourage the violence with which the organisation is typically known. A new leader would provide a new viewpoint on how to approach situations without resorting to violence or insults. Perhaps the new leader would help the EFF get greater support. However, we are limited in our speech because EFF members desire Malema.
