Malema to Mugabe: Grandpa, it’s enough now
JOHANNESBURG – Julius Malema says while he celebrates the legacy of Robert Mugabe, he believes the long-time leader should not run for another presidential term.
The Economic Freedom Fighters held a briefing at its headquarters in Braamfontein on Monday afternoon following the party’s third plenum over the weekend where it outlined its plans for the year and the 2019 elections.
Malema says Zimbabwe’s president needs to follow in the footsteps of former Gambia leader Yahya Jammeh and let go of power.
“It’s not because we hate him. We celebrate Mugabe, we celebrate what he has done and we will continue his legacy – but ‘Grandpa, it’s enough now. You must let go and allow other people to continue with that. Let go.”
