The leader of the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF), Julius Malema has visited restaurants in South Africa to assess the employment ratio of South Africans against that of foreign nationals.
This comes as local nationals are complaining that businesses are employing foreign nationals leaving them to languish in poverty.
Analysts view the move as a departure from Malema’s African brotherhood philosophy which considered “fellow Africans” as equal to South African nationals.
The change in Malema’s approach to immigration issues and South African Immigration Politics follow the victory of Herman Mashaba, president of ActionSA, in some local government authorities. Pindula News presents EFF’s statement on Malema’s tour:
