EFF STATEMENT ON THE PASSING OF KOKO SARAH MALEMA
Saturday, 4 May, 2019
The EFF is saddened to learn of the passing of Koko Sarah Malema, the CIC Julius Malema’s grandmother who passed away this morning at her home in Seshego, Polokwane. It is with a heavy heart that we receive this news, knowing that just three weeks ago, the Malema’s buried one of their aunts, the daughter of Koko Sarah.
We send our revolutionary condolences on behalf of the entire Economic Emancipation Movement to our CIC Julius Malema, the entire Malema family, their relatives and friends. The greatest matriarch and pillar of their strength has fallen; the great tree that provided cooling shades of comfort, love and stability has been uprooted, forever, from their lives.
May their hearts be comforted, in particular the CIC Julius Malema who is leading the most crucial election campaign in his politics career; leading from the forefront. Even more difficult, is to receive such news on the eve of the final elections Tshela Thupa Rally where he must deliver the final massage of the EFF before the country goes to the polls.
We wish him and his family, many of which are also EFF activists, a heart of strength and comfort.
We are in close contact with the family and the CIC and shall continue to update the entire country of all funeral preparations and details thereof.
The CIC is still expected to address the Tshela Thupa Rally tomorrow at Orlando Stadium at 10h00 AM.
May the soul of Koko Sarah Malema rest in perfect and eternal peace.
