The South African politician Julius Malema reiterated his call for a united Africa, which breaks down all geographical barriers.
He was speaking after being re-elected chief of the Economic Freedom Fighters, EFF, over the weekend. The politician said that the EFF used the South African platform as a starting point, but that its main objective was to achieve continental unity at the political level.
“(One Africa)… where all member states will be held accountable, we want Africa to be one. South Africa is just a starting point. And why ? Because democracy came from the North and whose economic development must start from the South for the North. “
It is not the first time that Julius Malema has appealed to the United States of Africa. In May of this year, he declared that a united Africa would be a threat to imperialism and colonialism. He also criticized African leaders who do not work for a united Africa.
“The African Union (consists) of brothers who favor each other, who do not speak the truth to each other. Who do not blame themselves. This is the direction we want to take. “
He stressed that it is young politicians who must stand up to take over. “It is our generation that must fight for an Africa without borders and create a country outside this continent, called the United States of Africa. “
