South African Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) Julius Malema sent Embakasi East MP Babu Owino an appreciation gift.
This was revealed by Babu Owino who termed the package as a precious gift after he received the red beret from Malema.
The Leader of the Economic Freedom Fighters of South Africa Honorable Julius Malema, my comrade in the Youth For Africa Movement today sent me a precious gift. It is precious because of what it symbolizes. He sent me a red beret from the EFF. Babu Owino wrote
This red beret is the same color of the struggle for freedom in Uganda led by Honorable Bobi Wine and the revolution in Zimbabwe led by Honorable Nelson Chamisa. Red symbolizes the blood that has been shed by patriotic citizens seeking justice, fairness, and freedom in their countries.
I humbly receive this symbolic token ahead of Hon Malema’s visit to Kenya later in the year as we continue to agitate for youth inclusion in the governance of the continent. I renew my commitment to always speak out in the face of corruption, bad governance and injustice.
People Power will always be greater than the People in Power!
Viva EFF! Viva Bobi Wine! Viva Nelson Chamisa! Viva Youth For Africa!
The gift comes barely a week as South Africans prepare to go to the polls on May 8, 2019.
Malema’s party, EFF is seen as a big threat to ANC which has been in power since the end of apartheid and the first democratic elections to be held in South Africa in 1994.
