Economic Freedom Fighters leader Julius Malema says former President FW De Klerk must wish that he doesn’t become president because if he does, he will ensure the former president suffers in jail.
Malema was addressing supporters outside the Bloemfontein Magistrates Court.
He appeared on Monday on charges of violating the Riotous Assemblies Act when he advised supporters in 2014 to invade unoccupied land.
The case has been postponed pending the outcome of his application in the High Court, challenging the constitutionality of the act.
After Malema said the EFF would not slaughter white peoples just yet, De Klerk released a statement calling Malema’s statement a disclaimer of the core values of the Constitution and also announced he intended approaching the Human Rights Commission.
