A man from Bronkhorstspruit, who lost his wife during a farm attack in 2008, has accused Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) leader Julius Malema of instigating farm attacks.
Duncan Prinsloo (70) was shot in the back during the attack. He marched to the Union Buildings in Pretoria with AfriForum on Saturday.
The protestors want government to declare farm murders a priority.
An emotional Prinsloo called on Malema to “prove he is a man”.
“I want to say to Malema today, who is the big instigator of farm murders. I want to challenge him today, I will give him a rifle, I will load it, and I will stand still, so that he can finish what they begun. I want to see if he is a man because he can shout out to the youngsters and tell them to go murder the farmers in their farms.”
“He must be able to show whether he is a man, or whether he is a mouse. I don’t even call him Mr Malema because that refers to a man. I want to challenge him today and I am very serious about that. I don’t mind dying, he can come finish what they didn’t finish and let’s see if he has the guts to do what he teaches the youngers to do.”
The EFF could not be reached for comment. (Jacaranda)
