Rising South African political star Julius Malema has criticised Australian Home Minister Peter Dutton for offering white South African farmers a place of refuge from racism in their home country. Malema insisted Australia lacks the necessary amount of exploitable black people necessary for white farmers to avoid poverty. Malema offered the following concerns with respect to the plight of his white agragrian countrymen:
If they want to go, they must go. They must leave the keys to their tractors because we want to work the land, they must leave the keys to their houses because we want to stay in those houses.
Don’t make noise, because you will irritate us. Go to Australia. It is only racists who went to Australia when Mandela got out of prison. It is only racists who went to Australia when 1994 came. It is the racists again who are going back to Australia.
They are rich here because they are exploiting black people. There is no black person to be exploited in Australia, they are going to be poor.
They will come back here with their tail between their legs. We will hire them because we will be the owners of their farms when they come back to South Africa. As to what we are going to do with the land, it’s our business, it’s none of your business.
We want Africa back. Africa belongs to our people. (archived)
Malema is the major opposition figure to South African president Cyril Ramaphosa who last month pushed through measures to allow white African land to be taken without compensation.
