The Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) leader, Julius Malema slammed the criticism labelled to him. There has been numerous attacks to Malema that he contributed to the arrest of former president Jacob Zuma.
Since, EFF was formed they disrupted the establishment of the Indian family called “Guptas” whom are said to have been controlling the government under former president. Malema and other members of EFF called out Zuma and his removal from presidency.
However, later on Malema said it would be unfair and inhuman for South Africa to sentence an old man like Zuma, and he said there may be an alternative way to punish him should he be found guilty.
He responded harshly towards tweeps slamming their stands that he was part of the crew that led Zuma to jail.
We are not natured to be “bo mphenya šilo or abo Mshaye azafe”. We are here to speak truth to power and disrupt the establishment. We strictly do politics, not personal vendettas. Immediately after we defeat you politically, we move onto the following agent of the establishment. pic.twitter.com/FY6ndVqCjF

Immediately after we defeat you politically, we move onto the following agent of the establishment,” said Malema on his tweet.
EFF leader warned minister Bheki Cele and president Cyril Ramaphosa, saying the chaos happening in Nkadla (prior an arrest of former president) should not lead to bloodshed of innocent people.
“We are in this mess because two old men with their stubbornness couldn’t compromise,” he said at IEC in Centurion.
On Thursday, midnight the former president handed himself to the closest correctional service facility in KwaZulu-Natal to start serving his 15-month sentence.
