Black First Land First (BLF) has accused Economic Freedom Fighters leader Julius Malema of being racist and colonialist.
The BLF has opened a case of racism against Western Cape premier Helen Zille for her tweets that supported colonialism.
Zille has since publicly apologised for her actions, but the BLF has refused to accept her apology because they believe it was fake. She will be expected to appear at the Western Cape High Court today.
The former DA leader was banned from taking part in all political activities, but the movement claims this punishment was just a slap on the wrist.
Remember when Malema threatened to end the EFF’s alliance with the DA if Zille was not removed as premier?
It seems as if he has forgotten about that. The BLF expressed how shocked they were that Malema had accepted Zille’s punishment so easily.
“It’s blacks like this who entrench racism and make our people suffer more. BLF shall never collaborate with racists and colonialists who stole our land.”

The movement wants Zille’s punishment to be more severe and has demanded that she “commit herself to destroying the basis of colonialism”.
BLF leader Andile Mngxitama even challenged Malema to a debate.

But the EFF leader decided not to play games with the ‘childish’ Mngxitama.
I won’t do it

Some people supported the BLF’s claim and agreed that Malema was a colonialist.
Julius too deep into whites to get us our land back, even going out of his way protecting racist
