Herman Mashaba has confirmed that he has laid a complaint against Julius Malema for his contentious advice to foreign nationals, where he advised them to find a “creative way” to enter South Africa.
Leader of ActionSA, Herman Mashaba took to Twitter on Monday, 18 January 2021, to announce that he has laid a formal complaint against the Commander-In-Chief (CIC) of the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF), Julius Malema. Mashaba stated that he has laid a charge with the Madam Speaker of Parliament over Malema’s questionable advice to foreign nationals during the EFF’s first press conference of the year last week.
In a statement explaining the motivation behind the complaint, Mashaba noted, “Our legal team has compiled a complaint that details how Malema, in making his remarks, is in breach of his oath of office as an MP (member of Parliament), and his advocacy for the breach of the MP Code of Conduct, Ethics and Members interests.
Malema was quoted as saying, “So let the borders be open, and if the gates are not going to be open for SADC, fellow SADC people, please find a creative way, this is your home, your families are here. There is no ways anyone is going to close you out here. Lesotho and Free State are one thing, Mpumalanga and Swazi land are one thing, North West and Botswana are one thing, Limpopo and Zimbabwe are one thing. What is the point, there is no point at all…”
Mashaba has always been resolute that despite advocating for intra-continental trade, he believes that the only foreign nationals that should be in the country are those who have entered legally. His sentiments have been supported by many South Africans that have been looking to support a leader that prioritises the country’s citizens, despite him previously clarifying that he does not endorse the #PutSouthAfricansFirst movement.
