EFF leader, Julius Malema has labelled President Cyril Ramaphosa a dealmaker and not a leaderwho became president to meet white leaders and clinch deals with them.

Speaking at the party’s Africa Day celebration event in Sunnyside in Tshwane on Friday, Malema said Ramaphosa became president to go around the world and make deals with white leaders  not to help the people of South Africa.

“Cyril doesn’t need a salary. He took that position because of deal making,” Malema said. “He wants to go around the world making deals.

That’s why he wants to be president… He doesn’t want to be president for the poor. He doesn’t want to be president for the HIV patients.”

“He wants to be president so that he can have access to white leaders and then they clinch deals. He is not a leader, he is a dealmaker.

That’s who is he is.” Malema added that white people said Ramaphosa was the best president and that everyone else believed it.

“White people want us to believe that we have got our saviour, we’ve got an engine; Cyril Ramaphosa is coming to save us.” Malema added that Ramaphosa should be rejected for what he did to people in Marikana and for buying a buffalo for R18m.

He said the president should also be rejected for giving half of his presidential salary to a new Madiba fund, saying it was a “misdirected type of intervention.”

“The money must go to the squatter camps. The money must go to the landless people. The money must go to the unemployed people. The money must go to the children of the domestic workers. That’s where we need this money.”

Malema also criticised those who applauded Ramaphosa for the move. “You all clap hands as if he is the masterpiece, but this man is worth billions.

Why can’t he take half of what he is worth and give it to the poor? Why can’t he take half a billion and give it to the poor?”

Speaking about Africa Day, Malema said it’s a day in which Africans can celebrate themselves and tell the world that they are Africans and proud of their heritage. “We are not ashamed of being African. We are not ashamed of being black.” ')}
