Julius Malema, leader of the EFF, is not above the law and his reckless and poorly disguised threats of violence against police officers and their families in their homes amount to no less than intimidation.
The FF Plus is currently in the process of lodging a criminal complaint against Malema with the police in terms of the Intimidation Act (Act 72 of 1982). In terms of this Act, a person who is found guilty of intimidation could be sentenced to paying a fine of R20 000 or be handed down a prison sentence of ten years.
Malema addressed his supporters in the Mohokare Municipality in the Free State over the weekend and said, among other things, that the EFF is “not afraid of the police”.
He added that police officers are cowards who hide behind their uniforms, which makes them act superior, and that EFF supporters will fight them “in their own houses with their own families”.
Decisive action must be taken against Malema because he is becoming more and more radical and he seems to think that he is invincible.
The FF Plus will ask the police to urgently launch an investigation into the matter because they cannot allow this type of threat to go unpunished.
These kinds of statements have the potential to plunge South Africa into conflict and it would be absolutely unacceptable to let Malema get off scot-free again.
