South Africa is not xenophobic, come and study in here - MALEMA tells Ghanaians

Thursday, January 25, 2024
 – Commander in Chief of the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF), Julius Malema, has told Ghanaian Physicians and Surgeons that South Africans were not xenophobic and they should consider studying here.

Speaking during his keynote address at the Arise Ghana Dialogue in Accra on Tuesday, He encouraged Ghanaian students to feel at ease when considering studying in South Africa, a remark which was met with a loud applause from the crowd.

“When I am here [Accra], I am at home.”

“When you are in South Africa, feel at home.”

“South Africans are not xenophobic; [they] are peace-loving people,” he said.

“I extend my invitation to all of you to come and study in South Africa.”

“To come and work, take holidays in South Africa because it is your home too.”

“The same way you welcomed us here, we will welcome you in South Africa,” Malema said.

Malema said no politician would build a sustainable career using xenophobic sentiments to get a constituency.

He mentioned Operation Dudula’s Nhlanhla “Lux” Mohlauhi, saying he is not a definition of South Africa.

He said the Operation Dudula leader wanted to use xenophobia for his rise to fame, but he was reduced to being an insignificant molecule. 

“No one can rise in Africa on the ticket of xenophobia. That is the beginning and the end of your political career. Politics are based on history, philosophy, and ideology,” he said. 

“That is why it is not sustainable. Such individuals who seek to protect us as wrong people in South Africa do not take them to heart.”

“Dr Kwame Nkrumah’s idea has always been black people must always be in solidarity with each other because they’re the most hated people all over the world, it doesn’t matter where you find them,” he told the crowd.

Earlier this week, Malema had a paparazzi moment in Liberia where thousands of people pushed and shoved to try and get a closer look at the Seshego-born former ANC Youth League president.
