Economic Freedom Fighters leader Julius Malema said on Tuesday that he wanted to emulate Robert Mugabe and congratulated the Zimbabwean leader on being re-elected president.
Speaking from Nigeria where he was visiting spiritual leader TB Joshua for “blessings” and “divine intervention”, Malema said that he — like Mugabe — was merely misunderstood, according to an eNCA report.
The former ANCYL leader said that Mugabe’s success at the polls should be celebrated.
“They have made their wishes very clear… and we want to congratulate President Mugabe because he has returned the land to the people and Zimbabwe will be one of the fewest African countries which is truly owned by Africans,” he said, according to the eNCA report.
