The Democratic Alliance in South Africa has announced it will lay a criminal complaint against EFF leader Julius Malema and MP Nazier Paulsen for posting tweets of machine guns, including one that read “Cowards move to the back. Fighters attack!” following farm murder protests in Senekal. “These inflammatory utterances are a serious offence, especially by Members of Parliament who are bound by an oath of office. In what constitutional democracy in the world will elected public representatives be allowed to openly and publicly incite racial warfare?” the party’s chief whip Natasha Mazzone said, adding that “This kind of rhetoric has no place in [the] country,” and that “the DA will not allow it to happen here”.
