"EU Can Go To Hell With Its Money", Malema Speaks On Charumbira's PAP Election

The leader of the South African opposition party, the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF), Julius Malema, has dared the European Union (EU) and other funders to “go to hell with their money” if they are not happy with the election of ZANU PF Senator Chief Fortune Charumbira as president of the Pan-African Parliament (PAP).

Charumbira, who was the Southern region’s endorsed candidate, garnered 161 votes from a possible total of 203 votes during elections held at a session of the continental legislative body in Midrand, South Africa on Wednesday.

There were 31 abstentions and 11 spoilt votes.

Malema was asked by journalists if Charumbira’s election would not upset funders like the European Union and ultimately cause them to halt funding the continental body. He responded:

They can withhold it. We are not going to be told by the people giving us money how to think, how to act.

If they want to withdraw their money, they can withdraw it. Secondly, this is not Zimbabwe. This is Africa.

We are dealing with continental politics, and when dealing with continental politics, you look beyond the country’s politics.

… if the EU wants to withdraw money because it wants to dictate to Africans what to do, I do not have sympathy. They can take their money.

They can actually go to hell with their money.

Malema said that, among all the parliamentarians at the Pan-African Parliament, Charumbira is the most well-experienced person from the Southern caucus. He said:

He knows the ins and outs, the weakness of the institution. He knows which areas need to be fixed.

We cannot, on the basis of party politics, then overlook the necessary capacity which will take this institution forward.

For us, it was not an issue of ZANU PF or MDC – that question is neither here nor there.

Malema is 100% correct. EU can not dictate to Africans their own favourite candidates. Politically, I do not like Chief Fortune Charumbira because he is ZANU PF, but when it comes to African or continental politics, Chief Fortune Charumbira becomes my man.

EU CAN WITHHOLD THEIR FUNDING. AFRICA HAS CHOSEN CHIEF FORTUNE CHARUMBIRA.

EU can withdraw their funding, then what? why always receive funding in the first place? reasonable people in need of cash should be diplomatic and not **** like Malema.

G 40 Urifuza iwe, Malema is always on point. He doesn't hate Zimbabweans, neither does he chase them. He only says employers in SA should give first priority to South Africans. Would not you not advocate for the same if Chinese here do employ Zambians leaving Zimbabweans?

Wow!wow! Tula mazimbabeans .do you have a pending case or some differences with the hournerable chief or malema?so if not charumbira who do you want?don't mix things here malema is always right pointed.he is just.he does not hate foreigners but,he want south African to be preferred first when it comes to employment.from my assessment here,the people who support CCC and its leader chamisa the puppet of EU AND ITS ALLIES.are the one who don't like charumbira.they have the phobia of just supporting the wests without reason.they hate charumbira the chief's president following his frequent utterences urging other chiefs to support zanupf.now EU has clearly disclosed their agenda when chamisa will next year elections.they to oppress us of our land again.manje totodzekera musango .ivhu iri kunevakarifira nesuwo ticharifira kana kuuraya vanoda kuritora.our land is irreversible.

Such kind of publicity defeats the reengagement drive which was pronounced by the president. Allow people with diplomatic skills to lead your opinions please.
