Economic Freedom Fighters leader Julius Malema says he received information that he was to be assassinated in a manner similar to that of North West businessman Wandile Bozwana‚ and believes that those plotting against him are “related to the ANC”.

Malema says he was alerted to the assassination plot by a “reliable source” within the state security services after Cape Town underworld figures sympathetic to the EFF rejected the assignment to kill him.

“Information was brought to our attention that there is a plot by some people in the North West. These people are related to the ANC. We have got names of the people championing it in the North West. We got names of the person who was asked to engage the underworld in Cape Town‚” said Malema.
