EFF Leader Julius Malema has urged the police to find the criminals responsible for the killings in Phoenix.
In an exclusive interview with Sizwe Dhlomo on Kaya Drive, he briefly addressed the criminal killings and vigilante acts, allegedly fuelled by racial tension in Phoenix.
“I just want to dress one point of Phoenix, where the Indians where killing our people. The police will have to find those people, because we may be left with no option but to go and find them ourselves. The sooner they do that the better. What they did there is unforgettable. We will never forgive them for what they did to our people. “ he said.
According to the Kwa-Zulu Natal Premier Sihle Zikalala, 23 people died in Phoenix, 13 in Chatsworth, while others were killed in Pietermaritzburg and a total of 220 people were killed in KZN.

[WATCH 🎥]: EFF MP Fighter Mam Khawula says what hurts most during this time is that the conversation is about malls and stores that were “looted”. Not the lives lost and families that are in pain.
