According to the EFF, its leader Julius Malema is currently scared of his life after they uncovered an alleged threat to kill him.
Malema who is know to openly attack anybody whom he disagrees with has come under several attacks in recent times. He is often seen going about town with bodyguards and according to the EFF this threat is real, even though they are not willing to share more details with the media for security reason.
The EFF says it will lay a complaint at a police station soon but has so far written to Police Minister Bheki Cele to make him aware of the threat on Malema’s life.
In a statement, the party says it’s on the verge of defeating the ANC in the North West and that these threats should not be taken lightly.
The party’s Tebogo Mokwele says: “We can’t just disclose how our security is operating, but what we’re going to do, we’re beefing up, not only him but the entire leadership of the organisation. So our security department is busy with that.”
