The leader of South Africa’s Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF), Julius Sello Malema, has said that the conspiracy theories on COVID-19 vaccines which are being developed, are baseless.
Malema also said if the “white people” wanted to kill Africans, the African continent would be without people since almost everything we consume is made in Western states.
He said that African states are not developing their own COVID-19 vaccines giving room to conspiracy theories, including one which says the vaccine is the mark of the beast “666.”
He also accused South Africa’s president, Cyril Ramaphosa, of pretending to be taking action against the coronavirus.
Julius Malema said it is known that the virus came with white people, yet South Africa is closing land borders when there is no fence to deter fellow Africans, including Lesotho, from coming in.
The former ANC youth leader added that the coronavirus flood gates are still open as “white people” still have access into South Africa.
Malema also castigated the “South Africa First” movement which advocates for banning other Africans from getting into South Africa for employment, saying Africa was one.
