One of the firearms experts said that Malema had broken numerous sections of the Firearms Control Act: "With the high level of gun deaths in South Africa‚ what Malema has done is an incredibly serious and stupid thing.”
AfriForum filed criminal charges on Wednesday against Malema over the incident while Malema told TimesLIVE‚ “It’s not a firearm and no real bullets were shot. It was a simulation‚ part of our entire act of celebrating the fifth anniversary.”
“AfriForum is obviously being opportunistic in this case because it is very clear as a bunch of Ku Klux Klan‚ they have made the commander in chief of the EFF and the EFF their agenda‚” Ndlozi told the SABC.
“They led a march called Black Monday in which real guns were displayed and in some instances fired. It is important to ask them whether they have also in that case opened cases against those people if they so care about public law‚” he added.
