Malema unfazed about McKenzie’s 2nd open letter

Johannesburg – Julius Malema says he isn’t worried about a new open letter from former convict Gayton McKenzie in which he accuses the Economic Freedom Fighters leader of involvement in a murder plot.


In a letter titled ‘Thug to thug: An open letter to Malema’, McKenzie made claims about Malema’s alleged involvement in a murder conspiracy.

He also accuses Malema of bankrupting the party through alleged abuse of party credit cards while claiming the EFF can no longer pay staff salaries or for water and electricity.

Following the letter, Malema told The Star newspaper that he doesn’t want to get involved in mudslinging and shouldn’t be worried about it.

He said he wasn’t going to do anything about McKenzie’s letter.

McKenzie’s letter comes as Malema continues to be plagued by internal party strife.

On Monday City Press reported that it had learned that the party was working on removingMpho Ramakatsa as an MP.

However, the party has adopted a different approach with its former land commissar Andile Mngxitama, who it called to a meeting to assure him that he would not be kicked out.

However, Mngxitama regards the move as “a bribe” and has accelerated his public displeasure about EFF decisions, including the one of keeping Papiki Baboile as North West leader, despite his conviction for murder.

This is McKenzie’s second open letter to Malema. Last year before the elections, the leader of the Patriotic Alliance leader wrote Malema was “the biggest thief I have ever met”
