'Malema is fiddling with two key pillars of SA's stability' - Max du Preez

Columnist and Author Max du Preez has criticised the leader of the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) Julius Malema for messing with the stability of this country.

According to du Preez, Malema in his party manifesto, fiddled with two pillars of South Africa’s stability, the army and elections.

He is talking about not recognising the election results and he is talking about the army turning against the government

He says some of the EFF members reacted to his column on Twitter telling him, “don’t take it so literally”.

So what they are saying is that we shouldn’t believe Malema’s words when he speaks to his party and on national television?

Du Preez says he thinks Malema is preparing the ground to contest the election results in August if his party doesn’t do as well as he hopes.

He is preparing the ground to say we don’t accept this… I think this is dangerous

Max du Preez, Columnist and Author

Dali Mpofu and his people should go to Malema and say be angry as you want but don’t mess with the military's neutrality and don’t mess with the legitimacy of our elections
