Malema silencing Zimbabwe opposition: group
“It is judgmental, weird and… incites xenophobia,” the human rights
group’s spokesman Brian Muziringa told journalists in Johannesburg.
Malema has previously called Zimbabwe’s opposition Movement for Democratic
Change (MDC) “imperalists”.
MDC South African district chairman Solomon Chikohwero said he was appalled
by Malema going to Zimbabwe and showing support for its President Robert
Mugabe in April last year.
“We saw him going to Zimbabwe and dining with the Zanu-PF [ruling party] and
Mugabe. He was campaigning for them and in the end they gave him 21 head of
cattle… we don’t know if this was payment or a gift of thanks,” Chikohwero
The Zimbabwe Youth Wing and the MDC in South Africa called on Malema to
apologise for his statements.
Zimbabwe Youth Wing founder Ismael Kauzani said if Malema did not apologise,
it would consider legal action.
