Speaking at a Nairobi hotel, South Africa’s Parliament and Pan-African Julius Malema came after Kenya’s President William Ruto for showing support to Israel in the Israel-Palestine War. He said that Africa is a rejected continent and so should stand with Palestine as they are also a rejected nation having not had any support from other countries of the world.
The Parliamentarian and leader of the Economic Freedom Fighters party added, “The president should not say that he supports an Israel that supports the killing of children and pregnant mothers. How do you say that you support an Israel that bombs refugee camps?”
The leader said that a Pan-Africanist should speak diplomatically. Nominated Mp, Ms Hezena Lemaletian reiterated that Mr. Malema is inspiring a strong Pan-African movement here in Kenya which is especially led by the Young Parliamentary Association of Kenya which was represented by Mark Mwenje of Embakasi West, Gitonga Mukunji of Manyatta and Amos Mwago of Starehe constituencies and Ms. Hezena.
Malema was on a two-day visit to the country to launch the Pan African Institute at Lukenya University in Makueni County.
