'Gupta family must leave SA': Malema

By Kgothatso Madisa | Feb 04, 2016 | COMMENTS [ 65 ]

Gupta family must leave the country with immediate effect; this is according to Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF).

Leader Julius Malema revealed that the EFF has launched a war against the Gupta family because they are corrupt.

In a stern statement made at the party's headquarters in Braamfontein, Malema said the Guptas are not a legitimate body and that their businesses are a 'machinery for corruption'.

He said that the EFF are going to take physical actions against them and President Jacob Zuma during their march to the Constitutional Court on February 9.

"The Guptas are not in the media business and anyone working for the Guptas is perpetuating corruption," said Malema.

He also urged The New Age and Africa News Network (ANN7) journalists to stop coming to EFF briefings because it is 'not safe for them'.

"Our sisters and brothers brothers in Gupta firms, we love you so much we don't want you to be casualties. 'Suka endleleni (move out the way)," he said. 

Malema said that the planned EFF march taking place on the 9th of February is a war against the Gupta family and President Jacob Zuma, amalgamating their surnames to 'Zuptas'. 

"We can't have a situation where we are controlled by a family. Zuptas must fall."

Malema made the surprising comments after stating that they will not accept President Zuma's settlement offer until he takes chapter 9 institutions 'seriously'.

"Our response is very clear, we are not going to agree to a settlement that, one, does not reaffirm the powers of the Public Protector.

"Two, the remedial actions of the Public Protector are binding, and three, that President Zuma should agree in the settlement that by failing to agree to implement the remedial actions of the Public Protector, he was in bridge of the Constitution and oath of office," explained Malema.

Answering a question on whether they were surprised by President Zuma's sudden change of heart on the Nkandla issue, Malema said they are not surprised because they knew that he will pay when they announced that they are going to the Constitutional Court.

He said that the office of the Public Protector is no longer respected like it was before President Zuma came in power.

Malema also vowed that the EFF will stop President Zuma during the State Of the Nation Address (Sona) should he not open by explaining why he fired former Finance minister Nhlanhla Nene.

He said that the country has lost billions of rands because of the removal of Nhlanhla Nene and no one is doing anything.

He said that EFF Members of Parliament are not scared of getting beaten by Public Order Police.

“That it will not be for the first nor the last time,” he said.

Jvee activism politics are like NGO's, there is no immediate gains its self sacrifice sometimes, you know I don't have anything to gain or lose if I was not an activist but I have so much passion for all the projects I am involved in, and when they come to fruition is like receiving a new born baby, like today, my ladies (fundraising) are on top of their game,the hours we will put into this are increadible, sometimes I just got home and collapse but there is light, Malema spoke figuratively that the land that was forcefully been taken will be returned to rightful owners eventually, so be patient, in SA we just have to work a little bit harder and longer, and you should not always seek personal gain, think about the people still waiting to be liberated from poverty already since 1994, when you think about this, you will realise that you and me speak from position of extreme luxury, so if the EFF ever comes to power there will be a lot of work to be done to address apartheid legacy,

Wena Malema...diarrhea of the mouther...This is how it goes in a country with laws... They are naturalised. The state must prove they've committed crimes. The courts and DHA will then strip them of their citizenship. Only then can they leave.

And if for some reason they threw their Indian passports into the sea...well sorry for u cos u can't make a person nationless.

More thinking, less spewing asb

N comrat, the diarrhea you smelling is coming down your nose from yout cranium. These crooks are not naturalized, they are criminalized. We should go back and re examine how they got here in the first place. You will find that the Indian authorities were ever so happy to see their corrupt backs.

Ok so...After all your spewing, the facts remain the same. They are naturalised. You can only strip citizenship if it is proven they committed crimes.

I am saying to you their citizenship was grant irregulerly, from there every acquisition they made has been at worst illegal at best highly immoral and unethical.

Then you have inside info i don't know about. If course if citizenship was granted fraudulently, then they must go. ..but even then, SA Inc had to follow due process.
