In a powerful keynote speech delivered at the Arise Ghana Dialogue in Accra, EFF leader Julius Malema emphasised the peace-loving nature of South Africans and debunked the notion of widespread xenophobia in the country.
Malema’s speech focused on promoting African unity and addressing concerns about xenophobic sentiments that have occasionally surfaced in South Africa’s politics.
Malema extended a warm invitation to Ghanaian students to consider studying in South Africa, assuring them that they would be welcomed with open arms.
He emphasised that South Africa is a home for all Africans and encouraged visitors to explore the country, work there, and enjoy their holidays. His words were met with enthusiastic applause from the crowd.
Addressing remarks made by Operation Dudula’s Nhlanhla “Lux” Mohlauhi, Malema dismissed him as insignificant and stated that no politician could build a sustainable career by promoting xenophobia.
He highlighted the importance of history, philosophy, and ideology in politics, emphasising that xenophobia was not a viable path to success. Malema reminded the audience of Dr. Kwame Nkrumah’s belief in black solidarity, emphasising that unity among Africans is crucial in a world where they are often marginalised and mistreated.
